Ronald Keith Wright and Rendy Wright are accused of kicking their seven-year-old son out of their Hooks, Texas home in August because he was supposedly “possessed.”
The Wrights, who are out on bail, were charged with abandoning or endangering a child, reports KSLA.
The couple reportedly told the police that they did tell their son to leave because the boy “would not mind or do what he is told.”
According to Bowie County officials, the couple consulted with a preacher who told them that their boy was possessed by demons.
The Wrights allegedly admitted to using methamphetamine as a hobby.
Their boy is now in the care of a relative.
