ABOUT THIS STORY | In January 2008, Banita Jacks was charged with the murder of her four daughters. She told police that her daughters were "possessed by demons." Authorities said the girls, ages 5, 6, 11 and 17, could have been killed as early as May. Marshals found their bodies in Jacks' Southeast Washington rowhouse after serving her eviction papers.
