(EVANSVILLE) - An Evansville woman was arrested on warrants out of Henderson for a number of crimes, including three counts of sexual abuse.

Investigators said 28-year-old Jessica Smith hosted a number of children in her home, ranging from ages six to 13, and provided them with alcohol and marijuana. She is accused of then engaging in inappropriate sexual activity with those children.

Police said Smith told the children she was a witch and would cast spells and hexes on them if they told anyone.

Smith is in the Vanderburgh County Jail awaiting extradition to Henderson, Kentucky.

The investigation is continuing.
