Defense attorneys for a Muttontown couple accused of enslaving two Indonesian women they hired as housekeepers filed a court brief late yesterday arguing that one of the women, who officials said had been tortured, had most likely inflicted the wounds on herself.
‘Slave’ suspects: Woman hurt self – Newsday.com
So here we have some explanation, by the defense, of how “Jane Doe 1” (one of the Indonesian woman allegedly enslaved and tortured by the defendants) got her injuries:
- She hurt herself,
- And there’s another person, from Jakarta (that’s the capital city of Indonesia), which we didn’t know about until now.
All allegations are denied by the defendants, and the pre-trial hearings continue.
