Russian Anastasia Lechtcheko, 19, was arrested today for killing and dismembering her mother, 45, and her 12-year-old sister in Tijuana, Mexico. 

Lechtchenko confessed to killing and dismembering her mother and her sister because she thought they were performing witchcraft against her.  

 

Although she confessed the crime, Mexican authorities were waiting for a formal arrest warrant. 

The dismembered bodies of the 45-year-old mother and her daughter were found last week in plastic bags at their home in Playas de Tijuana, about a half mile (1 kilometer) from the U.S. border.
