CNN: Couple planned to 'sacrifice' children:
ROCHESTER, New Hampshire (AP) -- A woman and her boyfriend are accused of plotting to sacrifice the woman's three children on a church altar.Excellent defense. So if I don't actually begin taking the literal and final steps to kill someone, then I've done nothing wrong whatsoever. ::Sigh:: If only it actually worked like that.
Police said Mancini told them that Jesus sacrificed himself for her, so she was going to sacrifice the boys to free her soul.
Mancini's attorney, Kimberly Shoen, said her client meant the children no harm.
"They were never tied to the altar, there was no blood, there were no constraints for sacrificial use," she said.
