Girl died after mother forced her to drink bleach

  1. A woman angry with her 12-year-old daughter for having sex forced the girl to drink bleach and sat on her until the child died, a police detective said.

    The girl's 9-year-old brother was forced to watch the attack, Detective Warren Cotton testified Thursday in a preliminary hearing for Tunisia Archie, 31.

    Archie is charged with capital murder in the asphyxiation death of her daughter Jasmine. If convicted, she could be sentenced to death or life in prison without parole.

    Cotton said Archie, who has been jailed without bond since shortly after her daughter's Nov. 26 death, told authorities she was disturbed because "her daughter told her that she was no longer a virgin."

    She said she poured bleach into Jasmine's mouth and the child vomited, he said, then sat on her until she stopped breathing, Cotton testified.

    Archie forced Jasmine's 9-year-old brother Jacorey to watch the attack and "told him that if he shed a tear that she was going to kill him, too," Cotton testified.

    What kind of monsters live in our world today?! :angryfire That poor 9 year old boy... I don't want to imagine what he is going through now!

    I hope BOTH - the murderer (I refuse to call her "Mother") AND the sick freak who had sex with the daughter get what they deserve - the full punishment under the law.

    Things like this make me sick!

    The mother's death sentence should be the same as she gave her daughter. Force her to drink Bleach, then sit on her until she dies. :stone

    The son is going to need serious therapy! My prayers are with him. His pain will be longlasting.

    I hope she doesn't get off on some insanity plea. :angryfire How could anyone do something like that?!? Her daughter probably came and told her mother because she was scarred and worried, probably had been taken advantage of by some much older male. And that was the "help" her mother gave her.
