The girl, killed in a California church, was expelled from court


SAN JASSE, CA (KRON) – A 3-year-old girl was tortured and killed by her family while performing an alarming exorcism-like ritual, casting out a demon, according to court documents.

Swing died at a small church in San Jose, California, after she was strangled by her mother, uncle and grandfather on Sept. 24, according to the Santa Clara County Attorney’s Office.

The girl’s family “believed that the child was possessed by a demon, and prayed for her in church,” – wrote in court documents, Deputy District Attorney Rebecca Wise.

“The victim’s grandfather was identified as the leader of the church and claimed to be a certified pastor,” Wise wrote.

Areli’s mother, 25-year-old Claudia Elise Hernandez of Mountain View, was charged on February 2 with assaulting a child using force that could cause grievous bodily harm. Now Hernandez is behind bars without bail.

Information about the horrific murder was never published by the San Jose Police Department or the District Attorney’s Office. However, recently discovered court documents describe in detail what, according to the investigation, happened to Areli.

Hernandez was questioned by police on September 24 and 25. During questioning, the mother told police she began believing on September 23 that Swing was “possessed” because a 3-year-old girl periodically woke up in the middle of the night crying or screaming.

On September 24, at 6.30 am, Areli’s mother and uncle took her to church. The girl’s mother, uncle and grandfather held Swing by the neck, torso and legs for several hours. They tried to make her vomit by sticking her fingers and hands down her throat.

Swing lost consciousness and received “numerous injuries around the eyes, face, neck and chest,” Wise wrote in court documents.

Swing died around 6:30 p.m. after 12 hours of torture, court documents say. Hernandez told police no one provided medical care to the girl before or after her death.

The family waited until 8:12 p.m. to call 911. When paramedics arrived, they found Swing’s lifeless body on the church floor. The court determined that her death was a murder caused by suffocation and suffocation.

Hernandez was the only person arrested in the case.

Prosecutors have called on Judge Luis Ramos to refuse bail because Hernandez posed a danger to public safety and is considered a risk of absconding.

“She was born in El Salvador, has minimal ties to society and is considered a high risk of flying,” Wise wrote.

The prosecutor’s office noted the extraordinary cruelty that Hernandez allegedly committed against her daughter. “She strangled her several times to the point that the victim lost consciousness, put her hands in her throat and continued to behave in this way for most of the day,” Wise wrote.

Amazing video on youtube

A video uploaded to YouTube in January, four months after Swing’s death, shows the mother talking about her daughter’s death.

Video on YouTube named by the full name of Swing, Swing Naomi Proctor Hernandez.

The woman in the video says, “Everyone wants to know what happened to her, you know, the cause of her death. Many people pounced on me after my daughter died; many people thought a lot because of what that situation looked like. If it weren’t for you, you don’t know what happened. I know what happened. “

“When she passed away, she was with me. Of course I’m her mom, why shouldn’t she be with me? ” Says the woman.

The stand-alone video lasts 40 minutes. Sometimes a woman smiles and laughs while chewing gum.

“I could sit here and be negative. But I don’t make sense to do that. I can’t change what I have. That’s how it is, ”the woman says.

She continues, “These are many reasons why God took her away. At least she doesn’t suffer. In this world we suffer so much, especially in our time. Everything is so bad. Everything is going down. That’s what I’m grateful for. That it will not grow in the world we live in. ”

“It’s hard to think I won’t see her grow up. But you know, that’s fine. That’s okay because I know she’s in a better place. God knows why He allowed this. My child was such a happy child. Being a mom is one of the best things. Of course, when I think about her, I get bored, I cry and miss her, ”the woman says.

Prosecutors charged Hernandez six days after the video was posted on YouTube.

If convicted, she faces up to 25 years in prison.

The church is associated with a kidnapped child

San Jose Church is housed inside a purple house that was seized by police last month while they searched abducted child.

One member of the church is reportedly a woman accused of kidnapping a boy, Yesenia Guadalupe Ramirez. Prosecutors say Ramirez was plotting with another kidnapper, Jose Ramon Portillo, to snatch the boy from his grandmother’s apartment.

The grandmother told the media that she met Ramirez through the church, and the two women became friends.

A 3-month-old baby was hidden for 20 hours at the Portillo house in San Jose before being rescued by police.

“The motive for the strange abduction in broad daylight remains under investigation,” prosecutors wrote.
