Oklahoma woman accused of killing daughter with crucifix


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma woman accused of killing her daughter by forcing a crucifix down her throat told police she believed the 33-year-old woman had been possessed by the devil.

KFOR-TV (http://bit.ly/2bG9vQL ) reports that police went to the suspect’s Oklahoma City home Saturday afternoon and found Geneva Gomez dead on the ground with a crucifix placed on her chest. Officers say they found Gomez’s body arranged in the shape of a cross.

Court records say 49-year-old Juanita Gomez told police she believed her daughter was possessed by the devil. She said she punched her daughter and forced a crucifix and a religious medallion down her throat.

The woman faces a first-degree murder charge and is being held without bond.
