All three landed on March 1, 1692 in prison. The guards pressed to name more names. More than 200 people, including those from surrounding communities were accused of being in league with the devil. Soon sat up to 150 prisoners in the cells, some died under the cruel conditions of detention. Even the four year old daughter of Sarah Good was arrested. Villagers had claimed the child had bitten them. The girl was later ransomed, her pregnant mother gave birth while in custody another child who died in prison.
Before the Special Court the whole procedure of indictment to verdict went completely arbitrary. This was because there was no functioning administration. Many prisoners were tortured to extract confessions. The 80-year-old Farmer Giles Corey did not want to testify. The torturers gave him so many heavy stones on the body that he died. The torture lasted for three days, but Corey accusing anyone.
In the hysterical heated atmosphere, the court sentenced many alleged witches to death. As first died on June 10, 1692 Bridged Bishop. Only those who called himself pleaded guilty and other names, escaped the gallows. Over the summer, 19 people were hanged, including a minister and five other men. The other 13 were elderly, poor women.
