Connie Villa killed her 13-year-old daughter with her bare hands after the girl refused to take pills like her siblings in a plan to deprive her ex-husband of the children, police say.

Citing "significant progress" in the investigation of the Christmas Day mother-on-daughter smothering of Aniarael Macias, Casa Grande police released a statement today that outlines details of the crime and the motive based on Villa's statements.

The 35-year-old woman did not want her ex-husband, Adam Villa, 33, to obtain custody of the children, police say.

She settled on violence as the best solution. Police say Villa admitted that on Christmas Day, she forced her three surviving children, ages 3, 5, and 8, to take some kind of opiate-based drug. Cops are aren't saying which drug yet.

"Connie Villa also admitted to investigators that she was unsuccessful in forcing Aniarael to ingest the drugs. She admitted to then forcefully suffocating Aniarael with her bare hands," Casa Grande police write in a statement released to the media this morning.

The medical examiner has been asked to look for signs of suffocation.

No mention was made about a confession to stabbing her ex-husband.

After poisoning the younger kids and suffocating Aniarael, police believe, Villa called her ex and lured to him to her apartment at 351 North Peart Road. She stabbed him several times in the upper body, but he was able to escape to his car, call 911, and drive to the Casa Grande Regional Medical Center.

When police officers entered the apartment, they found Connie Villa holding a knife to her own chest, stab wounds covering her upper body and her three youngest children at her side. Anirael was discovered dead in the bathroom.

Connie Villa made her initial appearance in Pinal County Superior court on Sunday night and was held without bond.

This woman fits the category of what I would call insane the only other options are demonic possession which the religious might see, or just plain mean, selfish viewing her children like property, hers to use, dispose and anger at her husband obvious since she lured him to his assault as well, women are often much more devious than men, not saying men do not do evil, I firmly believe Adam & Eve got evicted from the Garden of Eden for equal guilt, one lured one the other chose to disobey god as they both did, the only saving grace in this sad story is the father survived and might be there for these surviving kids! The mother is going to prison or death row or a mental hospital, glad I do not have to decide her fate or sit on her jury, got enough timbers in my eye to deal with, leave the justice system to deal with the splinters in hers and the sadists who troll these stories issuing their willingness to be her executioner/torturer etc., see both her and those making these suggestions as two peas in one pod!

More Homicidal Insanity from Arizona's Desert Racist Wasteland


Phoenix Dad Slaughters Son with Ax, fearing teen was man-eating demon


PHOENIX - A Phoenix man has confessed to killing his own son with an ax on New Year’s Eve.

According to Phoenix police Sgt. Steve Martos, police were called to an apartment near 12th Street and Bethany Home Road around 3:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

A call was placed by the victim’s mother after her son was picked up by the victim’s father,  51-year-old Gary Sherrill a day early. The mother and father are divorced, Martos said.

The mother told police, Sherrill failed to return their child and that she had been reaching out to her son and ex-husband.

When officers arrived, Sherrill told them his son was not home. Officers asked more questions and the suspect allowed officers into his home, Martos said.

When police entered the home, they found 13-year-old David Sherrill deceased with signs of trauma. Martos said the victim had stab wounds and lacerations to several parts of his body.

When homicide detectives arrived, Sherrill confessed to killing his son with an ax and told officials he was scared of his son. He told police he believed his son was a demon and was going to eat him.

These stories always bring out the sadists who are just one rung below the perpetrators in these cases, if one could peek behind their anonymous computer screens and view their records one would find domestic violence abusers of both genders, folks of both genders under CPS supervision if they have kids, since sadists just cannot be decent human beings and they find to much pleasure in these stories and how they want to be the public executioner/torturer! One can bet they have some serious demons inside their souls! Nothing is going to bring back this little girl, nothing will remove the horror to the surviving kids their own mother tried to murder them, only saving grace is the father is alive and might get them and this seems to be the catalyst which drove this woman insane or maybe she was just like many here plain mean, sadistic!

Why is this woman still breathing and why am I paying for her to breathe?

Strap this waste of life to a gurney and let the potassium chloride flow already. As far as I'm concerned this useless sack of crap lost her right to life when she strangled one child and drugged the others.

(Sorry if I offended anyone. This story has my blood boiling.)

Spay this worthless pos immediately. The last thing the world needs is more of her DNA in it. Then ensure she never has contact with her kids ever again. They'll be better off without her

If anyone actually gives a damn about this little girl, her siblings and family, you'd stop the public bashing of her obviously mentally it mother. Don't get me wrong, I think she should be held accountable for her actions. I just don't see any value in instigating a virtual lynch mob. That doesn't bring back that little girl. It comforts no grieving family members. It only has shock value which all most "news" outlets seem to aim for these days. It sets the stage for a bunch of mindless band wagon hoppers to vent hate. Most of the comments are overly emotional, worthless one liners like "burn in hell" or "kill this bitch now" from people who fail to see that in that moment they are no better than this lady.

This proves that giving birth or being a sperm donor doesn't make you a parent. She should be waterboarded daily during her prison sentence.WTF.

The couple in Tucson holding her three daughters hostage and torturing them for YEARS wasn't bad enough?

Insane or plain mean and vindictive and saw her kids as "her property" and to do with as she saw fit, cannot imagine the terror that poor child suffered in them last moments, strangulation, suffocation takes about 6 minutes to die give or take a moment, not a pleasant way to die! I hope her other children do go to the husband obviously he was the more fit parent!

when a man kills his family he is rightfully labeled a murderer. when a woman does it, it'sbecause she had no f orseeable alternative or she was inflicted by depression beyond her control.. we will see if the pattern remains true

You cannot shame a sadist, now if you had the power of Jesus when faced with these hypocrites who selectively choose which sin is worthy of being stoned to death, you could, but sadly these folks have no shame, they hide behind computer screens issue their judgments, opinions on how to torture her, put her to death, guess the ironic thing is they can see the splinter in her eye and totally miss the timber in their own, one could understand if the father or some of these kids immediate family made these comments one could chalk it up to emotionalism, but these are simply sadists who troll the net, issuing their god like decisions on who ought to die, how painfully and how much torture they like to impose on someone if they had the courage or power to do so! In fact most of them would likely have in another era worked for a Monarch in their dungeons where they could ply their inner demons on the folks they deem superior to! In fact some seek jobs in corrections, law enforcement that's why one sees these stories of cruelty, civil rights violations in news by such folks who slipped by the psychological tests! Many if one could peek inside their lives have had contact with CPS for being cruel to their own children and see themselves in a superior way when they are only one angry moment away from jail themselves!

@vagabond545454  "strangulation, suffocation takes about 6 minutes"


Less than 1 minute to lose consciousness.


So you're against Waterboarding suspects, eh?

You must just read head lines or be blind!:-) All one has to do is read the comments they speak for themselves, but then sadists are much like a alcoholic deny they have a issue, guess you view the comments through a blind eye or your issue is something quite different, guilt maybe for being identified?:-)

Trust me Zigs I wanted to let loose with a swear word laden rant but I opted to keep my temper in check.... I would love nothing more than to see this waste of life strapped to a gurney.

@DonkeyHotay


Guess I was luck not born with the sadism gene you were!:-) Maybe your karma will be to have a medical event one day and be unable to breathe as in a heart attack and experience something you have found joy in others experiencing!:-) If you ever saw a choke hold loss of consciousness can take from 1 minute to 3 minutes depending on how long one can hold ones breathe!! But dying in this manner at the hands of the one person who is supposed to love you is one of the cruelest deaths I can imagine! Your sickness has no cure sadism is a mental illness and your karma is truly bad!:-)

@jeanjb His point is actually valid. The woman murdered one of her children with her very hands. She tried to kill the rest with drugs. The only time motive will count is in a court of law when she tries to convince a judge or jury she had no control over her actions.

ever watch an episode of the series Snappped? it's all about women who were pushed or prodded to kill their spouse or significant other... funny thing is it's seems to be socially acceptable to think a woman is otherwise incapable of such activity unless first pushed in that direction.

@DonkeyHotay@yourproductsucks2


If your married and female you must wear the pants if your male and married you must wear the dress!:-) The simple fact is this woman murdered her child In cold blood, insane likely, mean possibly, or just vindictive and angry at her husband and saw her kids as her property to do with as she saw fit!

You must be dumb as a sack of rocks, if you had really read the article it stated she suffocated the child, which means cut off air supply, it did not say how the suffocation occurred but usual when suffocation is mentioned its the air way, strangulation is most often mentioned when it is done in the method you seem to have psychic ability to read into this story! The fact you mention "fun fact" in your comment tells me your one sick puppy!

DonkeyHotay
DonkeyHotay topcommenter

@vagabond545454 ... you really think a child can hold their breath for 1 - 3 minutes? You can't.


Strangulation results in loss of consciousness within seconds, as the blood-flow to the brain is cut off at the corotid artery. 


FunFact: in the U$A, a child is 10x more likely to be killed/murdered by a PARENT or FAMILY member than by a stranger.

@TommyCollins ... the only notable difference in this familicide is that the woman failed to successfully kill them all ... whereas when males/fathers do the deed, they almost always use a GUN and are almost always 100% successful.
