Connie Villa forced her three youngest children to ingest an undisclosed amount of drugs at their apartment before she honed in on her eldest daughter, Aniarael Macias, on Christmas day 2013.
When Macias refused to take the drugs, Villa told police she suffocated her daughter to death with her bare hands in their bathroom.
After Villa lured her ex-husband, Adam Villa, to the apartment, she stabbed him repeatedly in the upper torso, according to Officer Thomas Anderson, a Casa Grande Police Department spokesman. Adam Villa, who is the biological father of her three youngest children, escaped and called 911 while driving to Casa Grande Regional Medical Center.
Responding officers had to force their way into the home, where they found Villa with apparent stab wounds to her upper torso, Anderson said. She was holding a knife to her chest and had the three younger children at her side. This case paints a truly horrible picture of a family Christmas gone terribly wrong.
