Woman Slashes ‘Demon-Possessed’ Son’s Throat 3

From KFDM News in Texas:

A Houston-area woman has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for beating her 5-year-old son and slashing his throat in an effort to rid his body of demons.

A Montgomery County jury convicted Daphne Spurlock on Thursday of injury to a child.

The child’s father returned home in March 2012 to find him covered in blood. The boy spent a month in a hospital and then underwent many months of rehabilitation.


Spurlock, 45 at the time, told investigators she was reading the Bible with her son and realized he was possessed. She stomped on his chest and face and then cut him with a kitchen knife.

The jury heard the defendant’s insanity defense but still decided Spurlock knew right from wrong.

    Terribly disturbing story. Why do the craziest stories like this usually come from Texas? The irony is she’ll go to prison where she’ll be “saved” again. Isn’t that what usually happens in jail?

    Exorcisms should be illegal or highly restrictive.

    Too much illegal shit happens in them by people who don’t have a clue.
