It was in a church in San Jose, California, that the girl was strangled by her own mother, uncle and grandfather, reports the media KRON4.
The victim's family believed she was "possessed by a demon, and were at church praying for her," Assistant District Attorney Rebekah Wise said in court documents.
"The victim's grandfather has been identified as the head of the church and claimed he was a certified pastor," she added.
Arely died after more than 12 hours of torture, at approximately 6:30 p.m. The family called for help only two hours later, with nothing more the paramedics could do.
The thesis of the homicide was immediately confirmed, by suffocation and suffocation.
A bizarre video was posted on YouTube after the victim's death, titled with her full name, Arely Naomi Proctor Hernandez.
The mother, who films herself for about 40 minutes, says she "knows the true conditions of death [of her daughter]", while smiling and laughing occasionally.
