When Diocletian started prosecuting the Christians, she took her young son and left to Tarsus, where she was arrested by the ruler Alexander of Tarsus. He tried to make her become pagan but she refused. Then Alexander killed her son in front of her, and Ioulitta suffered a terrible death as well, since she was decapitated.
