However, a third roommate told detectives that Jordan placed her hand on Farmer’s forehead while she was praying. Jordan then pushed Farmer backward in a chair until Farmer, and the chair fell to the ground. During an interview with Police three
days later, while in hospital for an unspecified medical condition, Jordan confessed that once Farmer was on the floor, she sat on her in a prayer position. She then straddled her roommate’s chest as Farmer then pleaded with her to get up because she could not breathe. An autopsy concluded that Farmer died from mechanical asphyxiation. Her death was ruled a homicide, and a
warrant was issued for Jordan’s arrest. In addition to the manslaughter charges, the 41 year old is facing additional charges related to a separate assault on the November 25th. Police say Jordan repeatedly slammed a woman’s head into a wall while shouting, I rebuke you in the name of the Lord. Jordan is currently being held in Wichita County Jail. Her bond has also been set at $150,000.
