A Portales mother charged in her 6-year-old son's death has been arraigned in Roosevelt County.
24-year-old Teresa Gilman is in jail right now on no bond charged with first-degree murder and four counts of child abuse.
Thursday when her son 6-year-old Lorenzo Cabral Junior was discovered unresponsive and not breathing at a home in Portales.
He was pronounced dead at a hospital. Autopsy results show the boy died of head trauma and water in his lungs.
9th Judicial District Attorney Matthew Chandler tells us... The boy's mother told police she believed her son was possessed by the devil... so she tried to get the devil out by filling a gallon jug with water and then forced the water down the child's throat.
Police found drug paraphernalia at the home and Gilman admitted to using marijuana and methanphetamine.
