A woman accused of helping her husband kill their eight-year-old daughter because they believed she was demonic has pleaded guilty to murder.

Valerie Carey (29) was sentenced on Tuesday to life in prison for the January 19 2004 stabbing and strangling of Quimani Carey at a downtown Atlanta motel.

Valerie and her husband, Christopher, were found walking down a busy street naked in freezing temperatures with their two other children, then aged six and two, 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. Investigators said Christopher had stabbed her with a knife until it broke.

As part of a plea agreement, Valerie 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. -- Sapa-AP
