BUCKEYE, Ariz. (FOX 10) - A woman accused of killing a 69-year-old Buckeye woman with a box cutter and hammer told police "God made me do it" after she was arrested, court documents say.
On Tuesday, police arrested 29-year-old Roxanne C. Lararmart for the murder of 69-year-old Sally Haese, who was found with critical injuries inside a Buckeye home near Ash Avenue and Redwood Lane.
According to court documents, a caller notified 911 early Monday morning that he heard women arguing inside the home and went to check on the women, he grabbed Lararmart by the sweater and tried to hold her as she forced herself by him.
She eventually made it out of the house through the back door.
Haese was bleeding badly from her head and when firefighters arrived at the home, they immediately transported Haese to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.
"I was in my room and I heard her[Haese] in there saying 'Ow, Ow', and I thought she fell," one witness said. "I went in, and Roxanne was on her. I couldn't see because it was dark, but I pulled her off of her she ran out of the room."
Witnesses inside the home at the time of the attack identified Lararmart in a photo lineup and when one witness asked Lararmart what she did, she replied, "God made me do it."
Police located Lararmart on Tuesday and she was arrested.
After her arrest, Lararmart told police that God told her to do it. She claims Haese had been molesting a young child and she was trying to do the right thing to help.
Police say Lararmart's bloody sweater was found at the scene, as well as a box cutter and ball-peen hammer, both of which are consistent with Haese's wounds.
The blood on the sweater is believed to be from the victim.
