A Texas woman has been arrested after she allegedly killed her roommate by sitting on her until she suffocated.
Farmer’s death on Nov. 21 was originally considered medical, but law enforcement officials launched a follow-up investigation after a family friend came forward days later with concerns, according to KAUZ
Detectives questioned Jordan and Farmer’s third roommate, and she reportedly said Jordan may have caused Farmer’s death but did not say anything to them on the day that Farmer died because she was afraid of Jordan, KAUZ reported.
According to the roommate, Jordan put her hand on Farmer’s forehead while praying and pushed her backward in an office chair until Farmer and the chair fell over, according to KAUZ.
Jordan then allegedly sat on Farmer’s chest until Farmer stopped breathing, KAUZ reported.
An autopsy found that Farmer’s death was a homicide caused by mechanical asphyxia, according to KAUZ.
During questioning with police on Nov. 24, Jordan allegedly admitted to pushing Farmer over and straddling her body in a prayer position with her hand on Farmer’s forehead, and then refused to answer further questions, KAUZ reported.
Jordan also faces charges in connection with a separate incident on Nov. 25 when she allegedly slammed a woman’s head into the wall while shouting, “I rebuke you in the name of the Lord” after a woman refused to drive her to Dallas for a medical appointment unless Jordan paid for gas, according to KAUZ.
Jordan’s bail has been set at $150,000..
