ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A leader of a New Mexico religious sect has been moved from jail to a hospital.
The state filed a motion to have Deborah Green moved because she’s on hunger strike. Court documents show she has not had food or water in at least three days.
Green is called “the general” — one of the founders of the “Aggressive Christianity” group that moved to New Mexico from California decades ago.
A grand jury has also indicted four members of the group accused of crimes against children. The indictment came down from the Cibola County Grand Jury late Friday night.
Deborah Green, and her son-in-law Peter Green, are facing charges of child abuse and child rape.
Two others face failure to report the death of a child at the compound south of Gallup.
Four other members were arrested on Wednesday as they were leaving the compound south of Gallup, with two vans of kids.
They are also accused of failing to report the children’s birth.
