Belief in demons and demon possession only leads to murder of one's children. The action of "exorcism" is madness

In 2014, a 28-year-old Maryland mother of four named Zakieya L. Avery stabbed her two youngest childrenĀ - ages 1 and 2 - to death. The older children, ages 5 and 8, were wounded but survived. Another woman, 21-year-old Monifa Denise Sanford, was also charged in the murders.

Police were alerted to the horrifying crime when a neighbor called and said they thought something weird was going on in the home. They later learned that Avery believed the devil was in her children, and she and Sanford had been trying to exorcise them.
