A second boy has told a jury of a woman burning his tongue with a spoon heated on a stove element, but the defence has accused the boy of getting together with another witness “to make it all up”.
The boy was asked by Crown prosecutor Kathy Basire why he had let the woman on trial put the hot spoon into his mouth.
“You have got no choice,” he said. “She puts a finger in your eye and then forces you to open your mouth.”
He said that on this occasion, in 2012, it was “the worst one I got”.
“She got a metal spoon and put it on the stove top and then stuck it in my mouth for two minutes. She then put it back on the stove and then put it back in my mouth.”
