An exorcism performed on a naked 11 -year-old Northern California girl nearly resulted in “their childrens” demise and powers say the exorcist was the girls mother.
Kimberly Felder, 45 of Ferndale, was charged Friday with going to kill her daughter, the Sacramento Bee reported.
In a press statement, the Humboldt County Sheriffs Office hailed a Good samaritan who tried to stop the exorcism. They said the man wrestled Felder to the ground as she pounded her daughter in the psyche with a piece of driftwood. A short time later a deputy arrived and handcuffed Felder.
If it were not for the intervention and heroic any act of John Marciel, it is very likely that the child would have been killed by Felder, the sheriffs role was indicated in the press release.
Deputies said they came to the beach in Ferndale in response to a 911 call went on to say that Felder was attempting to perform an exorcism on the girl, the Bee reported.
