Mum Set Free After she Drowns and Burns her 4-Year-Old Daughter Because 'God Told her to Do so'



A mother who believed she was a fallen angel and had to sacrifice her daughter to prove her faith to God has been found not guilty of murder.

Carly Ann Harris was accused of telling her four-year-old daughter "see you in Heaven" before drowning her in the bath and setting her body alight.
The 38-year-old told a doctor she felt "very calm" and had "done the right thing" after killing Amelia Brooke Harris at her home in Rhondda, South Wales, on June 8 this year, jurors were told.
The jury returned a "special verdict" after hearing that psychiatrists - appearing for both the prosecution and defence - agreed Harris was suffering from paranoid schizophrenia.
She has been sentenced at Newport Crown Court to a hospital order without limit of time.
This means she cannot be found guilty of manslaughter by reason of diminished responsibility.
During the two-day trial, jurors were told there was no dispute that Harris killed her daughter or about the events leading up to the incident.
Amelia's teenage brother found her body, wrapped in a sheet, on a table in their garden in Trealaw, South Wales, on June 8 this year.
