HENDERSON COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - The Henderson County Sheriff's Department confirmed, the woman found stabbed to death outside Chandler Friday, is the mother of David Koresh.

Deputies were called to a home in the 20,000 Block of FM 3079 Friday, around 1:00 p.m. after a report that a woman had been stabbed.  When they got there, deputies found Bonnie Clark Haldeman, 64 dead with several stab wounds.  Authorities later arrested Haldeman's sister, Beverly Clark, 54 and charged her with murder.

Haldeman's son, David Koresh was the leader of a Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, TX believing himself to be its final prophet.  A raid in 1993 by the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and a siege by the FBI ended with the burning of the Branch Davidian ranch.  Koresh, 54 adults and 21 children were found dead after the fire.
