Puyallup Woman Faces Charges for Throwing Infant

Anna A. Murphy has plead not guilty to purposefully throwing her 3 month old infant on the floor. She told police she was having "her first exorcism" and was in "a house of mirrors with Hitler," court documents show.

A Puyallup woman who pleaded not guilty to throwing her 3-month-old infant daughter on the floor told police she was in a "house of mirrors with Hitler," according to Pierce County Court documents.

Anna A. Murphy, 35, pleaded not guilty Monday to second-degree assault. 

On June 16, 2013, Pierce County Sheriff's deputies responded to her home on 95th Avenue East, after Murphy called 911 and said she raped her 3 month-old infant, court documents state. The child's father told police she intentionally dropped the child when he returned home and she was intentionally trying to kill her. 

The child was transported to Mary Bridge Hospital, where she was found to have sustained a bruised tongue and torn frenulum. The extent of the child's injuries are still unknown.

The child's father told police that Murphy had threatened suicide a month prior. Murphy told police she was "having her first exorcism" and she threw the child down because she was traveling through another dimension and was actually trying to save her. She made a variety of statements, including that she was being raped and was in a "house of mirrors with Hitler."

She was eventually cleared and transported to jail. Murphy is jailed in lieu of $150,000 bail and is ordered to stay away from her child and Puyallup home.
