That old time religion, it’ll make you crraaazzzyyy:
“Satan saw my husband as a threat,” Eva Mauldin told Houston television station KHOU-TV.
A grand jury indicted Joshua Mauldin last week on child injury charges after hearing evidence that he placed the two-month-old in a motel microwave for 10 to 20 seconds.
The infant, Ana Marie, remains hospitalized. She suffered burns on the left side of her face and to her left hand, police said.
Police said Joshua Mauldin told them he put Ana Marie in the microwave because he was under stress. Eva Maudlin denied it.
“He would never do anything to hurt her. He loves her,” she said.
She is hoping to be reunited with her daughter, but Child Protective Services is working to have the parental rights severed.
I would fucking hope so.
The wife seems to be under the delusion that her husband’s efforts to become a preacher attracted Satan’s attention who then forced her husband to try and cook their baby in the microwave. Personally I think just trying to swallow all the bullshit in the Bible is enough to make some folks flip their lids and do stupid stuff and there’s an ever growing body of evidence in support of that theory showing up in newspapers all the time.
