Mom said dead tot possessed by demon

According to court documents, Fort Wayne, Indiana resident Latisha Lawson, 31, forced a mixture of oil and vinegar to her children because she believed they were both demon possessed, WANE reports.

Lawson’s daughter Kierra King, 10, vomited when given the mixture. Her son Jezaih King, 3, was given the oil and vinegar three times. On the third time, Lawson told detectives she held Jezaih’s mouth shut for about 10 minutes until he stopped breathing.

After Jezaih died, Kierra said Latisha Lawson placed him on a bed and had her view his body and pray over him.

She is charged with three counts of neglect of a dependent and two counts of battery.
