High School Teacher
Specifically, Rebecca Nurse is accused of the supernatural deaths of Anne Putnum's children. She had been one of the midwives of Goody Putnum's when her children had died. But none of Rebecca's children nor grandchildren had died in infancy. Anne Putnum cannot accept that God would choose to take her children while allowing all of Rebecca's children to survive. So, Rebecca was accused of causing their deaths.
