    A woman drowned her 6-year-old daughter in a bathtub last New Year's Eve, then went to a hardware store, bought an ax and chopped off the girl's head, King County prosecutors said Monday.

    Samara Laverne Spann, 30, currently jailed in Sacramento, Calif., was charged with first-degree murder after she gave a videotaped confession to detectives that she killed her daughter, Kyeimah, while she was living in Seattle's White Center neighborhood, prosecutors said. A judge set bail at $1 million.

    On June 7, Samara Spann's father called the sheriff's office to say he had heard rumors that she had killed the girl. Three days later, a Sacramento County sheriff's detective arrested her on an unrelated accusation of slapping a different child.

    While in custody, she confessed to killing Kyeimah, prosecutors said. In the statement, Spann admitted using drugs heavily during the pregnancy and said it was because the girl was a "demon" that she cut off her head, according to charging papers filed in King County Superior Court.

    King County, again? I'm sure it's a beautiful place, but has little sun, high suicide rate, Ted Bundy, The Green River Killer, many cops are wife-beaters, many women get arrested for defending themselves against their abuser husbands. (All documented). Ugh, I don't think you could pay me to live there!

    White Center is more like the slum area of Seattle. Though you sure wouldn't find me in Seattle either. Tacoma is even worse.

    When Kyeimah Spann's mother called her daughter's elementary school last winter to inform them that the 6-year-old would not be back for spring classes, she explained to an office manager that the little girl had moved and was "in a better place."

    In fact, police say, she was dead, and it appears that Samara Spann, 30, now charged with killing her child, made sure to contact various agencies, offering plausible explanations to officials who might have noticed the little girl's absence.

    She's lucky to get away with 23 years, her actions are not consistent at all with the religious psychosis she claims she was victim of (believing her daughter was a demon). People seem to forget that in order to get a Yates verdict you actually have to be insane.

    Sounds like this mother got ticked off because her daughter was interfering with her social life. I hope she has to do every day of those 23 years. She should have gotten LWOP...at least. It sounds to me like this murder was premeditated....why 23 yrs? This judge gets a D-.
