Vicious maid tries to hex food

MALAYSIA - A maid allegedly tried to cast a spell on her employer by putting dirt from her skin and nose mucus into her boss' food so that she would "submit" to her, reported Harian Metro.

The maid's employer, known only as Zabedah, 38, said she did not expect Su, 34, to use black magic on her and her family.

"Previously, I found a red container that had a charm paper inside, a ring and perfume in her clothes bag," said the restaurant manager, who paid Su RM650 a month.

Zabedah said Su even admitted to the disgusting deed upon being threatened that she would be surrendered to the police.

"I didn't expect her to practise black magic because she was soft spoken and hardly protested against my or my husband's orders," said Zabedah.

Zabedah said Su started showing her true colours after six months when she began neglecting her duties, stealing items and sneaking out at night.

When confronted, Su said she learnt incantations from her aunt so that she would be loved by others.
