A woman in Phoenix is under arrest after telling police she shot and killed another woman because she didn’t believe in God.
According to the Phoenix Police Department reports, Anitra Braxton has been charged with murder after police found the body of a woman on her couch in her apartment on December 26.
At some point, Braxton shot the female victim in the eye because the woman apparently didn’t believe in God. The victim’s body remained on the couch for three days until authorities arrived. When police asked Braxton if anyone was in the home, she responded by saying that she was alone. But police where able to enter the apartment and found the victim laying in her own blood with a towel over her face.
While being questioned, Braxton told police the victim on the couch was a “shrine from God” and was actually her own body. She later told police that the victim had been shot in the eye for not believing in God, and that God told her to read the book of Jeremiah.
Sgt. Trent Crump with Phoenix police told the Arizona Republic: ‘She will not tell us who the victim is.
‘When we ask for the victim’s name, she gives her own name.
‘At this point, we’re not sure what her thought process is or what type of mental illness she may be suffering from.’
