INFANTICIDE (attempted): Washington: Anna Murphy claims "self defense"
A Washington State mother is accused of trying to kill her baby because she thought the baby was trying to kill her.
Anna Murphy, 35, pleaded not guilty to assault charges Monday,
according to The Bellingham Herald
The baby's father told authorities
Murphy threw their daughter down
and he found blood around the child's mouth, according to KIRO-TV.
Investigators say Murphy told them she was thought the girl was trying to kill her, so she wanted to kill the child in self-defense. According to court documents obtained by The News Tribune,
Murphy also said she was "having her first exorcism" and "she threw [the girl] on the ground
because she thought she was traveling to another dimension and [Murphy] was trying to save her."
Doctors say Murphy told them she was "
in a house of mirrors with Hitler
," according to Puyallup Patch.
The baby, who suffered facial injuries, is in protective custody.
