Waco Cult Leader's Mother Killed, Aunt Charged (Koresh)
Source: ABC News

The mother of infamous Branch Davidian sect leader David Koresh has been stabbed to death, and Koresh's aunt was in custody on a murder charge Saturday.

Bonnie Clark Haldeman, 64, was found Friday afternoon at the home of her sister, Beverly Clark, in a rural area near Chandler, Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt said. Chandler is about 175 miles north of Houston.

"It's still under investigation, and we really don't know what the motive was or what caused this to happen," Nutt said Saturday.

He said deputies were called to the home Friday and the two women were the only people in the house when deputies arrived. A knife believed to be the murder weapon was found.

Clark, 54, was being held without bail pending a court appearance. Jail officials said she did not yet have an attorney to speak for her.

4. At least the deputies didn't have to burn the house down to arrest her
I guess that is one step in the right direction.

5. Poor woman.
It must be awful to be stabbed, especially when it's your sister doing it.

More likely than not, their childhood was marred by violence. Violence begets violence, crazy begets crazy.

Like the poster below says though, at least they didn't burn the house down before they arrested the sister.
