The Haitian leader of a doomsday cult whose members were convicted in the deaths of two young sisters in San Miguel County in 2017 either won herself a new trial or a lighter sentence.

Madani Ceus had been convicted on two counts of felony child abuse resulting in the deaths of 8-year-old Hannah Marshall and her 10-year-old sister, Makayla Roberts.

On the orders of Ceus, a self-described spiritual leader of the small cult that was living on a farm in the county, the mother of the two young girls, Nashika Leonie Bramble, was told to place and lock her daughters into a vehicle because Ceus had deemed them “unclean,” according to court records.

After Ceus discovered that Bramble, now 43, was bringing them food and water, she ordered her to stop despite cries for help from the children. Ceus then ordered other cult members to place a tarp over the vehicle and tape it up.

The girls’ bodies were eventually found some time later “basically mummified and partly skeletonized,” those court records show.

After a multi-week trial, Ceus was convicted and sentenced to 64 years in prison. Unlike Bramble, Ceus was acquitted of two counts of first-degree murder.
