She and her followers were accused of several crimes, including denying the [Christian] faith, sacrificing animals to demons, and blasphemy. The night before she was scheduled to be burned at the stake she escaped, possibly to England, and was not heard of again. Her followers received punishments ranging from having to go to church and feed the poor to being flogged and burned at the stake. The strong implication is that she was a Witch.
