Ns News Online Desk: A man from Washington state beheaded his girlfriend in front of their 3-year-old daughter — later telling cops he “had spoken with God” and been ordered to “strike down” the woman “because she did not repent,” reports say.
Moments after the gruesome killing, Timothy Hernandez, 32, allegedly instructed his little one to “go say goodbye to mommy.”
He quoted two different Bible verses while speaking to cops about what happened on Sunday, and insisted he was carrying out God’s will.
“Each of the verses that were quoted had passages in them that spoke about women who did not follow God’s word, so God stuck them down,” investigators wrote in charging documents, which were obtained by local outlets.
Hernandez allegedly gave his girlfriend, Vanessa Cons, a chance “to repent,” but he claimed she refused.
“Timothy stated that he struck her down, and caused for her head to be removed from her body,” according to investigators.
Their daughter told cops that she “saw Daddy cut Mommy with scissors” — but it was actually a butcher knife that he allegedly used. The girl said she “did not know why Mommy had her eyes closed and blood on her face” after being instructed to go say goodbye to her.
Hernandez, who is charged with first-degree murder, claimed during police interviews that he was “not crazy” because “a crazy person would not tell the truth.” He is currently being held on $1 million bail.
A GoFundMe Page has been set up by his girlfriend’s family to cover funeral expenses.
“This feels like a bad dream,” her sister wrote. “[Cons] was a very loving person, who put her children first and herself last. Despite any challenges she might have been faced with in life she tried her best to stay positive and meet obstacles head on. Her smile would brighten any room and will never be forgotten. She is dearly missed.”
