Oklahoma grandmother pleads guilty to child abuse
(Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com)
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma City woman has pleaded guilty to five counts of felony child abuse for terrorizing her 7-year-old granddaughter while dressed as a witch.
The Oklahoman reports that 51-year-old Geneva Robinson dressed as “Nelda” to scare her granddaughter in 2014.
Court records say Robinson admitted to scratching the girl’s neck, striking her face, hitting her hand with a rolling pin and cutting her hair while she slept.
Robinson’s boyfriend, Joshua Granger, also pleaded guilty to one count for assisting and “causing mental injury” to the girl.
Police say Robinson was arrested in September 2014, after taking the malnourished girl to a hospital where the child told authorities about Nelda.
Sentencing is scheduled for March.
