Final day of exorcism trial


Linda Genborg 2012-03-17

The prosecutor argued for lengthy sentences for the parents in the exorcism trial, during the final pleadings in Borås on Friday.

The step-mother, the dad and two priests from small Christian parishes believed a young girl was a witch and possessed by demons. According to the girl, who was twelve years at the time, she was beaten, isolated from the rest of the family, underfed and burned with a red-hot knife.

According to the prosecutor, it was the girl's stepmother who initiated the exorcism. But the prosecutor says the dad was also largely responsible for letting it happen.

The prosecutor argued for at least five years prison for the step-mother, three to four years prison for the father, two years for one of the priests, and three to four months for the other.

All suspects were released while awaiting the court's ruling.
