Toddlers stabbed by nutters who thought they were performing an exorcism.

Two women charged with stabbing and killing two children in Germantown, Md., believed they were performing an exorcism, Montgomery County Police said today.

Police charged both Monifa Denise Sanford, 21, and the mother, Zakieya Latrice Avery, 28, with two counts of first degree murder and two counts of attempted first degree murder.

“Investigators have learned that the two defendants believed that they were performing an exorcism,” police said in a statement released today.

On Friday around 9:30 a.m., police responded to a call at a townhouse where officers discovered what they described as a “very bloody” crime scene.

Police found both Norell Harris, 1, and Zyana Harris, 2, dead with multiple stab wounds. Avery’s two other children, Taniya Harris, 5, and Martello Harris, 8, along with Sanford were also found injured and taken to a hospital.

You cannot have a rational conversation with someone who holds irrational beliefs.

The Catholic Church performs exorcisms to this day. The church still teaches that people can be possessed by evil spirits.

That has nothing to do with this tragedy but it gives exorcisms credence.

Admittedly, the Church doesn’t usually kill the people it performs exorcisms on.
