A 5-year-old boy is in critical condition after police said his mother used a kitchen knife to slash his throat.

Daphne Spurlock, 45, told Magnolia, Texas police she slashed her son’s throat because “he was infested with demons.”

On Saturday night, Spurlock allegedly stomped on her son’s head and chest before slitting his throat.

The child’s father came home from work to find Spurlock standing over the child.

Child Protective Services said it has no history with the family and there are no other children who live in the home. Family members have indicated that Spurlock had recently been battling with mental issues.

The young boy was air-lifted to Memorial Hermann Hospital after his father called 911.

His mother has confessed and is in Montgomery County Jail on attempted capital murder charges. Source

This will continue to happen as long as we don’t address mental illness in the black community.
