A Coventry man has been jailed for the beating and torturing of his daughter whom he believed was a witch.
The unidentified man claimed his daughter had the power to cause people to fall asleep and that he first suspected she was a witch when he caught her talking to herself.
The father admitted speaking to his minister about the situation, claiming that he wasn't able to "get through to her".
The man is accused of bounding, gagging, and torturing his daughter by burning her with candle wax and melted plastic, beating her with a stick, and of cutting her with a knife.
The victim was found with multiple bruises, burns and cuts on her body.
The father has been sentenced to eight years in jail.
