Woman Kills Daughter With Crucifix

An Oklahoma woman was convicted Thursday of murdering her daughter by shoving a crucifix and medallion down her throat.

Jaunita Gomez, 51, believed her daughter Geneva Gomez, 33, was possessed by the devil. When police arrived on the scene, Geneva’s body was found with her arms spread out as if she had been crucified and there was a large crucifix. Jaunita admitted to police that she shoved a crucifix down her daughter’s throat and watched as she took her last breaths.

Despite attempts to appear incompetent, a psychologist determined that Jaunita was able to stand trial. Jurors recommended a sentence of life in prison without parole.
