Texas Children's Protective Services filed the paperwork to get custody of a 5-year-old Magnolia boy allegedly attacked by his mother.

Michael Spurlock, 5, remains in a medically-induced coma after undergoing surgery. Investigators say his mother cut his throat before stabbing and severely beating him.

Daphne Spurlock is charged with attempted capital murder. Her husband told police his wife believed the child was possessed. No bond has been set for Daphne Spurlock, 45.
