Alleged Wicked Witch Arrested in OKC

06-Oct-2014

It's a story that is so weird that it has grabbed international headlines. An Oklahoma City grandmother is accused of being a real-life wicked witch after a 7-year-old girl claimed that the woman dressed up as a witch to abuse her.

Police say Geneva Sueveta Robinson, 49, took her young granddaughter to a hospital, saying she could no longer control the girl. Hospital workers noticed multiple injuries on the malnourished child, including burns, bruises, infected cuts, and marks on her wrists consistent with being bound. They immediately notified authorities about the possible abuse.

The girl gave DHS workers a bizarre explanation for her injuries. She said that her grandmother would dress up like a witch--an alter ego named Nelda--to abuse her. The girl said the woman would put on a green witch mask and take her to the garage, where she would suspend the girl by placing a pink dog leash beneath her armpits. The girl told DHS workers that her grandmother "would take her out to the garage, bind her up at night and make her sleep on a pair of jeans, because she was in trouble," telling her that "the creatures in the attic were going to come get her."

The girl described being struck with an orange and black whip and having a "wand knife" held to her throat.

A neighbor calls the allegations "laughable," and an adult male who lives in the home says that Robinson never dressed up as a witch to frighten, punish, or abuse any of the children. He calls the accuser a "troubled child."

However, some of the other children in the home back up the girl's claims of abuse. One told authorities that the girl was forced to "eat different food" or eat in the garage if she was in trouble. Another says Robinson held scissors to his finger and threatened to cut if off because he cut a doll's hair. And another adult male in the house says that Robinson "kicked him in the genitals on a regular basis."

Police say evidence found in the home seems to corroborate the girl's story. They allegedly discovered a pink leash hanging from the ceiling in the garage, a whip, a dagger, a witch hat, a hooded cloak with red eyes, a long black wig.

Even though the witch costume could be passed off as Halloween props, the nature of the girl's injuries are concerning. All four children in the home have been placed in protective custody.
