LAWRENCE, Kan. - A police officer says a child whose brother and sister were found bound and blindfolded in a Walmart parking lot in Kansas told him the family believed her younger siblings and their Illinois home had been possessed by demons.

The children were discovered tied up and with duct tape over their eyes outside the store in Lawrence in June. Their parents, 44-year-old Deborah Gomez and 52-year-old Adolfo Gomez Jr., are charged with two counts of child abuse and five counts of aggravated child endangerment.

Police officer Hayden Fowler testified Tuesday that an older daughter said the family was going to try to cast the demons from her 5-year-old brother and 7-year-old sister.

Fowler told a preliminary hearing the girl did not explain how they would do that.
