Background information and notes Edit

  • This episode appears to be ripped from the headlines of the Charity Miranda case. Charity's mother, Vivian, and a classmate, Serena Martin, engaged her in a two-hour exorcism because her mother believed that Charity had a demon inside of her. Charity died during the exorcism process and to cover her death, her mother placed her in a plastic bag, leaving her at the bottom of the stairs.
  • McCoy has been prosecuting cases for nearly 25 years.
