Anna Murphy is accused of trying to kill her 3-month-old baby because she supposedly thought the infant was trying to kill her.
The baby’s unidentified father said when he arrived at their Puyallup, Wash., home on Sunday, Murphy told him she had thrown the baby on the floor.
KIRO-TV reported that the baby's father saw blood on and inside the baby’s mouth and called 911.
Murphy reportedly told police that she experiencing her first exorcism and threw her infant down because she thought the baby was traveling to another dimension.
She was taken to a hospital for an evaluation and made bizarre statements involving being raped in a house of mirrors where Hitler made an appearance.
She was jailed in Pierce County, Wash., on a charge of second-degree child assault and is being held on $150,000 bail.
Murphy’s boyfriend told police that the troubled mom threatened to commit suicide a few weeks ago, but he did not explain why he left the baby in the care of a suicidal person.
