LAS VEGAS — Christina Allen murdered her 3-year-old son Noah by drowning him in a bathtub and she said that the demons made her do it.
Her son was taking a bath all by himself while his mother, according to the police report filed, said she was laying in bed feeling depressed when she blacked out and then woke up and heard voices in her head.
So she climbed into the bathtub with her son and drowned him.
She asked him first if he wanted to go swimming, and not knowing the plans his mother had for him he said he wanted to. Noah must have quickly realized that something was wrong and told his mother that he did not want to swim, but it didn’t matter. She held his head underwater until his life was cruelly snuffed out.
She claims that she heard voices in her head, but a different picture of Christina Allen has emerged.
Her ex-husband Bry Allen says that Allen is just evil and wanted to get back at him. He and his ex-wife did not have a good relationship after their divorce. Although they shared joint custody, they communicated by email.
Christina Allen was apparently so upset at the situation with her ex-husband that she claimed that her ex-husband threatened her with gun in February. That accusation was determined to be without merit and she faced misdemeanor charges for her false report.
Her mother has said that her daughter was on medication for nerves.
Perhaps more tellingly, a neighbor who lost a child to a non-murderous drowning had told Allen about her tragic loss.
Could that conversation have planted the seed for the ultimate revenge?
Christina Allen had only been living in the apartment where she murdered her son for approximately one month and is expected to plead insanity.
Was Christina Allen truly insane or a bitter, vindictive woman seeking revenge?
Christina Allen has been charged with one count of open murder and remains held without bail.
