Both Suspects In ‘Exorcism’ Child-Murder Case Indicted • Tuesday March 17, 2009

Toddler beaten, slammed into objects, bitten and strangled

HENDERSON — A couple who told authorities they were trying to rid a toddler of demonic possession when she died, have been indicted for her murder — a murder that included the child being beaten with a hammer, slammed into stationary objects and finally strangled.

KMOT, Dec. 4, 2008 report

A Rusk County grand jury handed up the capital murder indictments this week against registered sex offender Blaine Keith Milam, 19, and Jessica Bain Carson, 18, the Dec. 2, death of the woman’s 13-month-old daughter Amora Bain Carson.

Carson and Milam called 911 from a home at 13717 County Road 2125 shortly after 10:35 the morning of Dec. 2, and said the child was not breathing.

An arrest affidavit states Milam performed an exorcism of the demons purportedly possessing their child.

The affidavit continues to state after Milam killed the child with Carson looking on, the couple “drove to Henderson to pawn some items to pay for an exorcism.”

Officials said Milam and Carson told detectives they decided to hire a priest after the exorcism went badly.

However, there has been no information of any clergy being called to the home found in the case.

Detectives said at the time Carson and Milam beat the child multiple times with a hammer then bit the child more than 30 times.

The indictments against the couple state the defendants also caused the child’s death by striking her against objects and by strangulation.

Both Milam and Carson remain jailed on $2 million bonds.
