An immigrant from Indonesia testified that the woman she worked for in New York beat her and kept her so short of food she ate garbage.

The woman, testifying at the trial of Varsha and Mahender Sabhnanil, was identified only as Samirah. She said that life in their house in the enclave of Muttontown on Long Island’s North Shore was so miserable she just wanted to leave, The New York Post reported.
