Grandfather and Uncle Charged With Mother for Girl’s Fatal 12-Hour Exorcism
An uncle and grandfather are joining a mother behind bars after a three year-old-girl was killed during a horrific, 12-hour exorcism.
Claudia Hernandez, 25, of San Jose, California, was first charged in January for the death of her daughter, Arely Hernandez, who she believed possessed a demon, court documents show. Following the horrific death, Hernandez posted a lengthy video to YouTube where she casually claimed her daughter’s death “is what it is.”
On Friday, investigators additionally charged Rene Aaron Hernandez-Santos, 19, and Rene Trigueros Hernandez, 59, for their roles in the fatal ritual, the New York Post reports.
