A 9-year-old girl and her sister, who was 11 at the time, were being abused and tortured by 50-year-old Mary Hines and her two daughters inside a house on Detroit's east side, according to investigators.

DETROIT (WXYZ) — A 9-year-old girl and her sister, who was 11 at the time, were being abused and tortured by 50-year-old Mary Hines and her two daughters inside a house on Detroit's east side, according to investigators. Mary Hines, a phlebotomist, is now charged with two counts of torture, three counts of first-degree child abuse, and other varying degrees of abuse.

The alleged victims are related to Mary and her daughters and in court, their attorneys suggested that the biological mother of the young girls coerced them into making the claims of abuse and torture because she was upset that the Hines were not giving her the money they were receiving to care for her daughters.

One of the girls had her arm tied behind her back with an extension cord while one of the women poured hot water down her back, according to information the magistrate was reading into the record during the arraignment for Mary and her daughter, Sayvonnaa.

It's alleged Mary choked one of the girls and threw her to the floor for going outside and later told Sayvonnaa to hit the girl over the head with a tennis racket.

Bond for Mary and her daughter Sayvonnaa was set at $50,000 cash or surety.

Mary told the magistrate that she took the girls to Virginia to live with their biological mother.
