A woman from Oklahoma was convicted of murdering her own daughter by forcing a crucifix and a medallion down her throat.

Juanita Gomez, 51, told police she was trying to "rid Satan from her daughter's body," according to CBS News. She said she watched her daughter die and then placed her body in the shape of a cross.

A psychologist who evaluated Gomez found her competent to stand trial and said she was faking memory problems to avoid a heavy sentence.
