Mother Kills 2-Year-Old Daughter, Claims Girl Was Suffering From Muslim Curse

Chelsea-Michelle-BoothPolice have charged 25-year-old Chelsea Booth with the death of her daughter  after finding the 2-year-old’s body in an Annapolis City waste transfer  site.

Police spoke with Booth after her neighbors called to report they had not  seen Booth’s daughter for days. Booth told the officers that the child was with  her father, 28-year-old Antwan Nelson. However, when police spoke with Nelson,  he told them that he’d not seen his daughter in several months.

After Booth and Nelson were brought in for police questioning, Booth told  police that a “Muslim curse” had been placed on her daughter by the child’s  father and that her daughter was possessed by an evil spirit. She said she  had no choice but to murder the little girl by laying on top of her and  smothering her until she stopped breathing.

Afterwards, Booth admitted she wrapped her daughter in a blanket and then  tossed her into a dumpster at her apartment complex. Investigators were  dispatched to a Waste Management Inc. center where they searched for the child’s  body for hours, finally locating the it inside a rail car that was slated for a  landfill in Virginia.

Booth was charged with child abuse leading to first degree death,  first-degree murder, and second-degree murder. She was denied bail at a bail  review hearing Friday morning.

I think I may have been doing this for too long. It was terrible that a child  was murdered at the hands of her mother, but I found it refreshing that the  mother used an excuse I don’t remember ever having been used.
