The 15-year-old described attempts to cast demonic spirits from Abdul-ghani's body through a ritual that involved reading passages from the Qur'an while Siraj Ibn Wahhaj held a hand on the boy's forehead, and that Abdul-ghani apparently died after one of the sessions, Taylor said.
The attorneys' objections came Monday as officials with the Taos County Sheriff's Office testified about the recent raid, when the five adults were arrested and 11 children were found living in filthy conditions.
The defendants were arrested and 11 children were taken into custody during a raid August 4 on the compound near the Colorado state line.
Police raided the property - a squalid makeshift living compound near the Colorado state line - more than a week ago in response a report of children living in filth, severe hunger and dangers including a leaky propone tank.
Despite the release terms, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj is likely to remain in jail pending a warrant for his arrest in Georgia on accusations that he abducted his own son, Abdul-ghani, from the boy's mother in December and fled to New Mexico.
Prosecutor John Lovelace said the three-year-old, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, died during "a religious ritual" meant to "cast out demonic spirits".
Court documents named the adults as Lucas Morton and his wife Subjannah Wahhaj, Subjannah's brother Siraj Ibn Wahhaj - who has also been charged with the alleged abduction of his son Abdul-Ghani - and his wife Jany Leveille, and another sister, Hujrah Wahhaj.
"If these people were white and Christian, nobody would bat an eye over the idea of faith healing, or praying over a body or touching a body and quoting scripture", Clark said.
Eleven other children, ranging in age from one to 15, were found starving and dressed in rags and were taken into protective custody, authorities said. The remains of a young boy, believed to be Abdul-Ghani, were found buried at the site three days later.
The eldest of the captives, Mr Wahhaj's 15-year-old... Taylor said prospective targets would include "the financial system, law enforcement, the education system".
Police raided the compound, near Amalia, on 6 August as part of their search for a missing three-year-old boy, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj.
A court hearing is planned on allegations that children at a remote compound in northern New Mexico may have been trained in the use of firearms in preparation for a school shooting.
The children said Leveille was the leader in conducting rituals, Lovelace said. Authorities let the group go after Ibn Wahhaj explained he was licensed to carry the guns as a private security agent and that he and the others were en route to New Mexico for a camping trip.
They presented evidence of the firearms training done by Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and described a compound fortified by old tires and wooden pallets.
The decision came Monday evening after a lengthy hearing in Taos during which prosecutors said the five defendants were preparing for a unsafe anti-government mission.
"They are black and they are Muslim", Clark said.
