Woman wins protective order against warlock in Salem witch trial

A Salem “witch” has won a protective court order against a self-proclaimed warlock she accuses of harassing her.

The Boston Globe reported that a judge granted the order to witch priestess Lori Sforza, who accused Christian Day of harassing her over the phone and internet for years. Both sides testified in court on Wednesday.

Ms Sforza testified that Day made incessant phone calls and mocked her on Facebook.

Day’s lawyer described the dispute as a fallout between two former business partners. Day and Ms Sforza both own occult shops in Salem, Massachusetts, though Day now lives in Louisiana.

Before granting the order, the judge said he was dismayed by the volume of late-night calls made to Ms Sforza.

The Globe reported that Day denied making the calls before storming out of the courthouse.
