Negro Cult Members Sentenced To Life Plus 30 Years for Murdering Their Own Son

Marietta, GA
Two negro members of the Remnant Fellowship Church, a religious cult based in Franklin, Tennessee, were sentenced today for the vicious beating death of their 8 year old son. Josef Smith died in October 2003 after being beaten and locked inside a wooden box by his parents, Sonya and Joseph Smith.

The parents had originally claimed that their son had passed out during a family prayer meeting which the cult conducted over the internet, and never regained consciousness. Testimony during the trial revealed that corporal punishment was part of the cult's doctrine and that the boy's death was a result of such punishment. The cult's headquarters were raided by police in connection with the murder investigation.

The Smith's were each sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison for the murder of their son.
