Woman Claims She Accidentally Killed Romantic Rival During Exorcism

Woman Claims She Accidentally Killed Romantic Rival During Exorcism

All is fair in love and war. That’s what they say at least.

Not so for an El Sobrante woman who was arrested Tuesday for the June 5th slaying of a romantic rival, a killing she says occurred during an exorcism gone awry.

The accused, Karla Kuhl, a 35 year old resident of East Richmond Heights, claims she accidentally suffocated Patricia Medeiros in her 6000 block North Arlington home in the wee hours of the morning after a heated argument. Kuhl claims she was only performing an exorcism on the 58-year-old woman, who we should note was in also in a shared relationship with Kuhl’s would-be boyfriend.


Kuhl was arrested without question on one million dollars worth of bail and will appear in front of a judge next Tuesday.

What with the recent rash of exorcism deaths spotting North America, I can’t help but wonder if the, ‘oops, I accidentally killed you,’ angle hasn’t become the go-to excuse for offing someone.
