BOSTON (AP) – A Salem, Massachusetts, woman who calls herself a witch priestess is taking a self-proclaimed warlock to court over accusations of harassment.

Lori Sforza is accusing Christian Day of making repeated calls to her home late at night and swearing at her, and making malicious posts on social media. Sforza and Day will meet in court on Wednesday. A lawyer for Day declined to comment.

Sforza runs a witchcraft shop and a pagan church in Salem. Day owns occult shops in Salem and New Orleans. A lawyer for Sforza said the pair had been business associates in Salem before things went awry in recent years.

Salem is home to the 17th century witch trials and has a tourism industry built around the occult and Halloween that reaches fever pitch in October.
