Frail OAP Dies After Her Kids Carry Out Exorcism

A brother and sister duo who tortured their pensioner mother to death during an exorcism are facing jail.

Piotr Majewski, 38, and Barbara Majewski, 39, from the town of Ostrowiec, in south-central Poland, claimed they thought their mother's Alzheimer's was a sign that she was possessed by the devil.

So they carried out their macabre ritual on mum Irena, 75. They later told police the spirit of their late father was the conduit between her and the devil, who wanted her soul.

"They said at first they tried to banish his spirit from the house, and when that failed went ahead with the full blown exorcism," said a police spokesman.

"They tied her to a bed, put a cross on her head and forced her to drink holy water and renounce the devil.

"When she told them she had had no contact with either Satan or her dead husband, they began beating and torturing her," said local prosecutor Miroslaw Cebula.

The popular belief is that demons are cowards, and cannot stand pain, which will see them fleeing a human host.

An autopsy showed that she had broken ribs, a shattered jaw and severe brain trauma.

The pair now face 12 years in jail.
