A Maryland mother stabbed two of her children to death and wounded two others while attempting an exorcism, authorities said.

 

Police said they found the four children Friday morning after a neighbor called 911 to report suspicious activity at the home. The neighbor reported seeing a car with a door open and a knife next to it.

Zakieya L. Avery, 28, was charged Saturday with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder, Montgomery County Police said in a statement.

A second woman, who was briefly hospitalized after the incident, was also charged in the two deaths. Police believe she is not related to the family, but lived at the same residence in Germantown.

Norell Harris, 1, and his sister, Zyana Harris, 2, suffered fatal stab wounds while their siblings, ages 5 and 8, were hospitalized with injuries, authorities said.

Exorcism is a ritual aimed at defeating purported evil spirits or demons. Authorities did not provide additional details on why they suspected exorcism.

For a second there I thought I was reading the plot of the next Constantine movie. How on earth did she think she'd exorcise her kids with a knife, without killing them?  :/

Religion. Getting in the way of human progress since the world was at the center of the universe.

ITT people that don't understand mental illness. Because insane people wouldn't act insane if it wasn't for religion.

Undiagnosed or mistreated mental illness. The actual culprit here. But your attack on religious people puts you in the same category as those who attack others because of their religion. The VAST majority of religious people have not attempted an exorcism on their children.

 

Perhaps we should ban religion, or knives, or children for that matter. Because obviously, if one crazy person does something horrific, then everyone else will do the same thing unless we neuter the entire world of the abilities and circumstances that this lady had.

Clearly mental illness. No mother in her right mind be she Christian, Muslim or an advocate of The Church of The Flying Spaghetti Monster,

Would ever do this to there child, its against all instincts.

Well someone obviously has not watched Supernatural because that is not how you do a Exorcism.

Hard to say if mental illness, religious faith just bypasses logic altogether - whether it is exorcism or suicide bombings.

of course mental illness, but killing that is inspired by religion, says right in the story... exorcism...

 

and off topic, but child killing has been religious based since the dawn of man... whether it be a martar, a sacrifice, an offering, or a just because.
