Man Murdered His Girlfriend With A Hammer Claiming She Was A Witch

An American living in New-York murdered his girlfriend and her daughter whom he accused of casting voodoo spells on him which made him sick.

Carlos Alberto Amarillo, 48-year-old, living in Queens, was found guilty of viciously beating his victims (Estrella Castaneda 56-year-old and her 25-year-old daughter Lina Castaneda) to death with a hammer on Jan. 29, 2014, prosecutors said in a statement at the time. Estrella Castaneda, 56, and her 25-year-old daughter Lina Castaneda were found dead in their bedrooms, which had blood splattered on the walls, shortly after midnight.

Amarillo admitted to killing the two in a 911 call he made after the scary act, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement Wednesday. "Two females are dead. They were assassinated. Hurry, they are dead. I killed them because they are witches," Amarillo said on the phone, according to the statement, which cited trial records. "I want the police to kill me. I killed them with a hammer."
"Thankfully, the little girl . . . was not harmed during these deadly attacks," Brown said in the statement. "She will, however, be forever impacted by the absence of both her mother and grandmother in her life."

Amarillo was holding a Bible when police arrived. Authorities also found Castaneda’s 7-year-old daughter unharmed on the bed in her mother’s room.
Amarillo was convicted of two counts of first-degree murder, fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child, following a nearly two-week trial. He faces life in prison without parole when he’s sentenced July 6.
