Christian parish thought young girl was a witch

Linda Genborg 2012-03-05

A twelve-year-old girl was burned with a red-hot knife, beaten and forced to starve. Her parents believed she was a witch in need of exorcism. Today starts the trial in Borås District court.

The girl's father and step-mother and two pastors in small Christian parishes are, among other things, accused of aggravated abuse and gross violation of integrity. 

The girl is now 14-years-old and lives in a foster home.
