DETROIT – Faith Green delivered a detailed victim statement Wednesday before the man who killed her four children was sentenced to prison.
The mother survived the Sept. 21 attack in Dearborn Heights despite being shot and stabbed. Gregory Green pleaded guilty to the murders and torture last month.
"Not even torture and death would be justice," Faith Green said. "Your justice will come when you burn in hell for all eternity for murdering four innocent children, all because you're insecure as a man, plus the other two lives you took. You are a con artist. You are a monster. You are a devil in disguise. You are now forever exposed."
Faith Green's children were killed in front of her. She said she is suffering from short-term memory loss.
"Doctors tell me it's my brain protecting me from the memories of my children being shot in their heads right in front of me while I was gagged, duct-taped and zip-tied," she said.

Green’s 4-year-old daughter, Kaliegh Green, and 5-year-old daughter, Koi Green, were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning in a car and their bodies were later moved inside the home. Police found duct tape on the muffler of a car in the garage and a plastic tube attached to the car.
Gregory Green’s 17-year-old stepdaughter, Kara Allen, and 19-year-old stepson, Chadney Allen, were shot execution style in the basement of the home, authorities said. Gregory Green bound his wife, cut her face with a box cutter and shot her foot before shooting the two older children in front of her.

"Every time I find strength to get out of bed, as soon as I walk I am in extreme pain, sharp pain, from where he shot me in my foot. They don't know if I'll ever walk again without pain. Think about that for a second: Never being able to walk again without pain. My doctors say I have post traumatic stress disorder. That's where the migraines and nightmares come from," said Faith Green.
She also said she suffered nerve damage in her face where she was cut with the box cutter.
"I'm empty. Lost ... not really knowing what to do with myself. Just existing from day-to-day. All I ever wanted to be was a mother and wife, have a happy family and raise my children to be productive members of society and be happy. The reality I face now is this will never happen for me. Time will never heal this wound. I will always be empty, a part of me will always be missing. If there comes a day when I do wake up and it's not the first thing I think about, when I look in the mirror I will always be reminded by the scars he put on my face, cutting me from my ears to my chin with the razor blade box cutter. The pain on the left side of my face never goes away. He cut me so deep that it severed multiple nerves that may never heal correctly," she said.
Gregory Green sat quiet without emotion until he delivered his final statement. He spoke softly.
“I just want to say, well, first of all, it’s in God’s hands, and only he can judge.” Gregory Green said. “I do regret and I am sorry for what has happened.”
