ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) -- A North Carolina woman accused of using a hatchet to kill her 8-year-old and 4-year-old daughters is blaming ghosts for their death. The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Tuesday that a request for a search warrant includes a statement saying 33-year-old Naiyana Patel told a police officer that a ghost killed her children. Patel is recovering from self-inflicted injuries at Mission Hospital in Asheville. She's charged with first-degree murder in the slayings. Lt. Wally Welch says detectives have not had a chance to ask her about what happened. Patel and her husband operated a convenience store and had lived in Asheville for about 20 years.
