No bail for man who blamed voodoo after fatal stabbing


The judge's magical words: No bail.

Leonce Charles, 48, allegedly confessed to fatally stabbing his live-in girlfriend and mother of his children because he believed she used voodoo spells to control and sicken him, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Charles allegedly told investigators he 'blacked out from anger" and stabbed his 46-year-old girlfriend during a confrontation about infidelities, an arrest report said.

The voodoo worked — it looks like he'll be having a long spell in jail
