Juanita Gomez, 50, allegedly shoved the crucifix and religious medallion down her daughter Geneva's throat and confessed to police who had come to her Oklahoma City home Saturday afternoon on a welfare check.
Gomez reportedly told cops she began suspecting her daughter was 'possessed by the devil' the day before, and police noted that the mother had bruises and swelling on her hands and arms.
The mother said that she pushed the religious medallion down her 33-year-old daughter's throat until she saw blood come out.
The police report states that the mother then said she placed her daughter's body in the position of the cross and washed her.
Police found a large cross on top of Geneva's body and major trauma to her face and neck.
Juanita also admitted punching her daughter several times. She said the bruises on her hands were from trying to 'rid Satan from her daughter's body.'
She was charged with homicide and remains in jail on no bond.
