The Blaze - 01-15


A Texas Court of Criminal Appeals halted the execution scheduled Tuesday of a man who was convicted in 2010 of murdering a 13 month-old child in an exorcism ritual. Blaine Milam was sentenced to death for the gruesome murder of Amora Carson, his girlfriend's 13 month-old child, in 2008 in East Texas. He later said that he believed the infant was possessed by demons and that he needed to commit an exorcism ritual to save her.
