Police say two sisters are facing assault charges after they disfigured a girl in a voodoo ritual.
Peggy LaBossiere, 51 and Rachel Hilaire, 40 of East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, burned the 5-year-old girl to “rid her of a demon causing her to misbehave.”
The girl’s mother requested the ritual. She has not been charged but is receiving mental health treatment.
The girl suffered a third-degree face burn and has been taken into state custody along with her brother say police.
