Here are some Christians to help me drive my point home.
Texas Pair Jailed For Beating Toddler With Hammer
HENDERSON (AP) ―
A young East Texas couple was arraigned Wednesday on capital murder charges accusing them of beating the woman’s 1-year-old daughter to get rid of “the demons.”
Blaine Milam, 18, and Jessica Carson, 18, remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of a $2 million bond for each.
They were arrested Tuesday after Rusk County Sheriff’s deputies responding to a 911 call found 13-month-old Amora Bain Carson beaten. Investigators think the couple used a hammer to “beat the demons out” of Amora, Carson’s daughter.
Justice of the Peace Bob Richardson told the Tyler Morning Telegraph that it’s believed the couple went to a pawn shop to sell tools so they could hire a priest to perform an exorcism.
A message could not be left at a telephone number listed for the couple’s home. They did not have an attorney, according to Richardson’s office.
Milam was convicted of aggravated sexual assault of a child in August and was placed on probation. Investigator William Brown with the Rusk County District Attorney’s Office said that case did not involve Amora.
The child’s body has been sent to Dallas for an autopsy.
I’d comment, but I’m absolutely disgusted. I think you all know how I feel about this.
