‘Sadistic’ foster mother’s sentence for cruelty reduced

Eunice Spry The devout Jehovah’s Witness was sentenced at Bristol Crown Court in March last year after a four-week trial when it was heard that she had forced sticks down the children’s throats and made them eat their own vomit and rat excrement.

Mr Justice Burnett, detailing what he called a “catalogue of abuse”, said as punishment for misbehaving, Spry would beat the children on the soles of their feet and force them to drink washing-up liquid and bleach.
