Accused by a couple of kids dragged of to Lancaster and questioned for questioned please read torture. Of course they confessed and that was that.
And to think even now in Mexico and parts of Africa the uneducated actually believe that the old lady living on her own is a witch etc and they get burned at the stake or thrown on the bonfire.

Oh, hang on a minute.....
