Samirah and Enung, two Indonesia women, were hired by the couple to work as maids.

The maids claim that Sabhnani knocked out their teeth, cut them with a knife, poured boiling water on them and forced them to sleep on the ground while they were employed for the couple.

Sabhnani and her husband, who is being tried for not stopping or preventing the abuse, had a total of 12 charges held against them.

Aside from the jail time Sabhnani now faces and the potential jail time of her husband, the couple will also be forced to financially compensate the two women for their medical expenses due to their physical injuries.
