Barbora Škrlová accused of child abuse

The police have accused Barbora Škrlová, a Czech woman of 33 who attempted to pass herself off as a teenage girl and later a teenage boy, of abusing the 7-year-old son of her acquaintance Klára Mauerová. Ms Škrlová lived with Mauerová's family as the boy's stepsister for several weeks. Last May, Mrs Mauerová was charged with abusing her son, keeping him bound and naked in a closet. Brabora Škrlová was believed to be a victim of abuse herself but she is now accused of having been involved in the maltreatment.
