Witchcraft in Paraguay

No more insults about Puritan New England,  From November 5, 2014 Fox DC:
ASUNCION, Paraguay (AP) -- An indigenous woman has been burned alive in Paraguay after being accused of witchcraft.\

Officials said Wednesday that members of the Mbya Guarani community tied 45-year-old Adolfina Ocampos to a wooden pole and shot arrows at her before they burned her alive.

Ocampos was sentenced to death last week by the community's chief in Tahehyi, a village some 180 miles (290 kilometers) north of the capital, Asuncion.

Local prosecutor Fany Aguilera has charged nine men in the village with first-degree murder, and they have already acknowledged killing the woman.
