An Oklahoma City woman who is accused of dressing as a witch to terrorize her 7-year-old granddaughter has pleaded guilty to child abuse. A 6-year-old is also named in the affidavit.

Officers were called to a home in southeast Oklahoma City in Sept. 2014 after the woman tried to take the victim to Griffin Memorial Hospital.

According to the police affidavit, 51-year-old Geneva Robinson told employees at the hospital that she could not control the girl anymore.

The 7-year-old child looked to be malnourished and had numerous burns and bruises across her body, according to the police report.

The report says the victim’s ankles had cuts around them and were infected.

Her wrists had marks “which had the appearance of possibly being bound.”

Authorities say the 7-year-old girl claims Robinson, her grandmother, would dress up as a witch and abuse her.

The girl told a DHS worker that Robinson would wear a green mask, take her to the garage, bind her wrists at night and make her sleep on a pair of pants because “she was in trouble.”

The child says the witch’s name is “Nelda.”
