NEWPORT, Ore. (AP) -- Court documents say an Oregon woman confessed to stabbing her 6-year-old son.

A probable cause affidavit filed Tuesday says 34-year-old Nemoria Villagomez of Newport told detectives the boy "deserved it." She's being held in the Lincoln County Jail on charges of attempted murder, assault and criminal mistreatment.

Authorities say the boy was stabbed six times on Saturday. Covered in blood, he ran to a neighbor's apartment for help and was later taken by LifeFlight helicopter to a Portland hospital.

According to the affidavit, the officers who entered Villagomez's apartment found a large pool of blood on a coffee table and a steak knife with blood on the handle. Blood was also smeared on the walls.

When police entered the bedroom, they found Villagomez holding her 14-month-old son.

The mother's attorney, Mitchell Martin, did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
