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 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.
