Woman on meth murdered her child to protect her from aliens


This February 27-year-old Virginia mom Darla Elizabeth Hise killed her 6-year-old daughter Abigail Grace Hise with a shotgun, and new court documents reveal she did this because she thought that her children “were in danger from aliens and she thought she was going to save her daughter by sending her to heaven.”


Darla, who is currently in a psychiatric hospital, told detectives she also believed she had aliens inside of her and “wanted them removed from her stomach.” Her lawyer is arguing that Darla Hise did not understand what she was doing when she murdered her daughter because she was on drugs, including meth, and has mental disabilities.

She’s been charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, two counts of use of a firearm, possession of methamphetamine, and having a firearm while in possession of the drugs. She tested positively for using meth, amphetamines and marijuana, and she told doctors she’s been using these drugs for the past three weeks. Doctors at the hospital diagnosed her with “possible drug-induced psychosis vs PTSD psychosis.”

Although Hise also believed her 3-year-old son was in danger from aliens, he was found alive in the home and is now being cared for by relatives.

    I will never understand the whole plea due to insanity. No one in their right healthy mind would murder someone. So any one who murders of course is mental and they all deserve to rot in hell. No sympathy should be given and no plea deals should be made.

      Methamphetamine can cause complete psychosis, which is a person being out of touch with reality and having auditory, visual, olfactory or other types of hallucinations and beliefs. It’s real. But it shouldn’t be a defense. They took the drug voluntarily. Even truly insane people are tried as soon as they are medicated and their brain works well enough for them to help in their own criminal defense at trial.

    She deserves no breaks here. She isn’t mentally ill, it’s not something she was born with and had no control over. She chose to do meth and that led to her killing her child. Treat her like the murderer she is.

    But she CHOSE to be on meth. And if meth made her kill her daughter, it is her fault plain and simple. She needs to rot in jail for the rest of her life.
