Nevada Woman Accused of Child Murder
(Las Vegas, Nevada) A 30-year-old local woman, Christine Allen, has been accused of drowning her 3-year-old son in a bathtub. Reportedly, she told police that demons ordered her to do it.
Allen faces a charge of murder.
Allen told police that she was depressed as she lay in bed Saturday while her son, Noah Lane Allen, took a bath.Details on booking are unavailable.
Then, she said, it “was like a demon inside of me took over.”
She told investigators that she went into the bathroom and asked the boy if he wanted to go swimming, and he said yes.
So Allen climbed into the tub with her son and held his head underwater as he struggled.
The boy managed to get his head above water and told his mother he didn’t want to go swimming, but police said she pushed his head back under the surface until he drowned.
Allen told police that she was depressed because she was getting evicted from her apartment and her ex-husband was not offering any support for their son.
