ATLANTA – A woman accused of helping her husband kill their 8-year-old to rid her of a demon pleaded guilty to murder Tuesday.

Valerie Carey, 29, was sentenced to life in prison for the Jan. 19, 2004, stabbing and strangling of Quimani Carey at a downtown Atlanta motel.

Carey and her husband, Christopher, were found walking down busy Piedmont Avenue naked in freezing temperatures with their two other children, then 6 and 2, on their shoulders.

Police discovered Quimani on the floor of their motel room. Pages ripped from the Bible were thrown on and around her body, and her arms were broken.

Prosecutors said Christopher Carey had stabbed her with a knife until it broke, while she tried to fight back.

Valerie Carey held the girl while her husband broke her arms, and then she strangled Quimani.

Valerie Carey believed that her family would be transported to a planet inhabited by red dragons after Quimani was killed, and spread out her arms waiting to fly off, according to one of her attorneys, Susan Wardell.

Mother had a troubled history
After undergoing treatment while in prison, Valerie Carey, who has a long history of mental illness, said she now understands what happened and mourns Quimani’s death, blaming it on her husband.

“He kept us isolated and trapped in a different world,” she told the judge. “That was my baby. He took her from me and ruined my life.”

The family kept moving into cheap motels and homeless shelters, where the children were deprived of food and bathing, Fulton prosecutor Anna Green said.

She added that Christopher Carey also beat the children, especially Quimani, who asked to go to school.

As part of a plea agreement, Valerie Carey, agreed to testify against her 31-year-old husband.

He remains jailed without bond and faces a possible death penalty unless he agrees to plead guilty.

    See here is the big problem , there should be no question of the death penalty if they plead guilty or get a “deal”. There has to be a punishment for these monsters that is always the same, no matter what legal muneuver they pull .

    I think in this case this guy would be better off with the death penalty, for sure. At least from his perspective. IANAL, but if I were, I’d think you could put together a fairly convincing insanity plea (diminished capacity, whatever).

    I’m not usually the weak-kneed type, but even I don’t like to think about what would happen were Chris put into the general population in a maximum security facility somewhere. It’s my understanding that people who abuse and kill children — little girls in particular — find it very, very difficult to make friends in prison.
