A woman in New Mexico is now facing court after serious accusations of abusing her children and animal cruelty.
The Allegations and The Charges
Martha Crouch, a resident of San Juan County, is being charged with child abuse, animal cruelty and obstruction of an investigation into the same child abuse, as reported by CNN. She will appear in court this Wednesday. This takes place following accusations that she tortured many among her 15 children and even took their litter of newborn puppies and boiled them in a large sealed pot.
The criminal complaint released by the New Mexico Police Department gives details of the children’s statements. She reportedly shot one child in the arm with a shotgun while he was taking out some trash. She also put one of her daughters on a “fat chain” for eating too much and beat another one, causing the daughter to miscarry.
