>> While you were outside waiting.>> Prosecutors in court on Monday say a young boy whose remains were discovered at a New Mexico compound died during a ritual ceremony to cast out demonic spirits. Taos County prosector, John Lovelace, said Abdul-ghani Wahhaj's body was washed multiple times, wrapped in sheets, and buried in the squalid desert compound where 11 other children were found during a raid earlier this month.
The revelation came during a pretrial detention hearing for the three-year-old boy's father Siraj Wahhaj. He and four other adults were arrested at the compound on child abuse charges. They have pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors say the children were also trained to use weapons and to defend the compound in the event of an FBI raid.
The search for Wahhaj's missing son led authorities to the compound. Wahhaj was accused of kidnapping the boy from Georgia.
