Baby possessed, mother tells police

December 28, 2007|From the Associated Press

A Fresno woman told officers she drowned her 7-month-old daughter in a bathtub on Christmas Eve because the infant was possessed by demons, police said.

Lisa Brown was arrested Monday on suspicion of killing her daughter, Julian Engelman.

A search warrant affidavit says Brown told police that she was new to being a mother, and felt that she had to drown her baby because she believed that the child was possessed.
