Evonne Rodriguez's mother testified Monday her daughter believed her infant son was possessed by demons when she killed him.
Victoria Rodriguez said her daughter told her on the phone Jan. 29, 1997, that demons had entered her baby and she had tried to pull them out.
"Mama, I'm trying to get the demons out of the baby. Mama, I'm like an instrument," the elder Rodriguez testified.
She said her daughter described a harrowing scene in her north Houston home in which "she heard a lot of screaming, screeching voices, pounding on the windows."
"Just awful, worse than hell, worse than Halloween, just like hell, mom," she said her daughter told her.
Later that night, Evonne Rodriguez, then 20, was charged with capital murder after confessing the day before to killing her 4-month-old son, Ramiro Isabel Valdez Jr., by beating him with her hand and choking him with a rosary.
Rodriguez reported to police Jan. 28 her baby had been kidnapped from a downtown mall restroom.
The next morning, she took suspicious investigators to Buffalo Bayou and showed them how she threw the baby, whom she had wrapped in a plastic bag, into the water. The infant's body was never found.
Mac Secrest, Rodriguez's attorney, is basing her defense on temporary insanity, saying she had been distraught over a bad relationship with her son's father.
The defendant's mother, who broke down several times, testified her daughter had bouts of depression and low self-esteem.
The elder Rodriguez never said her daughter admitted the killing during the phone conversation but she had asked her why she had concocted the kidnapping story.
She said her daughter believed authorities would accept the story.
Later in their conversation, the mother said, her daughter said everything was under control.
"She had a very strange tone, a very sickly tone in her voice," Victoria Rodriguez said.

Monroe police today arrested a 31-year-old woman after her 3-month-old infant died while in her care.
Latarsha Rachay Dixon of 215 Egan St., was booked into Ouachita Correctional Center. She is charged with cruelty to a juvenile and neglect.
According to an arrest affidavit, the child died this morning after being left on Dixon’s couch for four hours unattended.
Police said Dixon never checked on the child while he was on the couch and that she left the residence, leaving her 12-year old son and three other small children to find the baby deceased.
Police said they noticed a knot above the child’s right eye along with a bruise. They also saw a bruise and swelling beginning to form around his right eye.
The child will be taken to Arkansas Friday for an autopsy. Police said the results of the autopsy will determine if Dixon is to face additional charges.
Dixon’s criminal history includes arrests for possession and illegal use of drugs and illegally carrying a weapon.
Bond had not been set late today.
