Oklahoma ‘witch’ gets life terms for terrorizing grandchild

Oklahoma ‘witch’ gets life terms for terrorizing grandchild
(Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com)
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma City woman accused of terrorizing her 7-year-old granddaughter while dressed as a witch has been sentenced to life in prison.
The Oklahoman reports 51-year-old Geneva Robinson was sentenced Thursday to three consecutive life terms. She pleaded guilty to five counts of felony child abuse in February.
Court records say Robinson, who dressed as “Nelda” to scare her granddaughter, 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, was also sentenced after pleading guilty to one count of felony child abuse. He is expected to serve 30 years in prison.
Police say Robinson was arrested in September 2014, after taking the malnourished girl to a hospital.
