Identified only as being "a woman in her 40s," the accused practitioner of the Black Arts stands charged of "practicing sorcery to separate married couples of bring them closer."
Reportedly, the Enchantress from the East was charging 2,000 Saudi Riyals ($500) per spell casting session.

Kiddie Rapists Busted...
Three men and two women were taken into custody in the port city of Jeddah on charges stemming from the gang raping of a three-year-old girl.
The yet to be identified infant was found essentially dumped off outside one of the city's hospitals, crying due to the severity and barbarity of her injuries.
According to the hospital manager Mohammed Ali;
She has been raped violently by some men. She was found crying of excruciating pain as her body was full of bruises and her sensitive parts were ruptured.
As cited, authorities expect more arrests in the case.
Meanwhile, three Royal Army soldiers were arrested gang raping a teen girl for nearly a month.
Blackmailing her, the troopers gave the girl the choice of either giving into their sexual desires or they would make public private pictures they had of her.
Eventually mustering up the courage to report them, the girl relates the soldiers made her slip sleeping pills into her family's drinks every night before she was taken to their barracks until early morning.
