Witnesses: Blaine Milam asked sister to ‘retrieve evidence’ from under house • Wednesday May 5, 2010

Detectives investigating the Dec. 2, 2008, death of 13-month-old Amora Bain Carson in Rusk County found a wrench under the home where she had been living hours after Blaine Keith Milam asked his sister to find and retrieve some evidence there, witnesses testified.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty for Milam, 20, if he is convicted of capital murder for Amora’s beating death. Milam was living with Jessica Carson, Amora’s mother, when Amora died. Jessica Carson, also facing a capital murder charge, is being held in the Rusk County Jail on a $2 million bond.

Judge Clay Gossett, of the 4th state District Court in Rusk County, is presiding over the trial being held in the 284th District courtroom in Conroe. Gossett ordered the trial be moved because of publicity, and attorneys questioned hundreds of Montgomery County residents during jury selection.

The little girl died of blunt-force trauma, officials have said, and her body had 24 bite marks. Milam and Jessica Carson claimed they were performing an exorcism “to beat the demons out of the child,” according to an arrest warrant affidavit.

The affidavit alleges that after Amora died, her mother and Milam “drove to Henderson to pawn some items to pay for an exorcism.”
