LONDON, Ont. -- She has already given the court a laundry list of horrors -- but there was more.

On Monday, even the Crown was taken by surprise when a woman who is the central figure in a shocking torture trial recalled more violent, bizarre punishments inflicted by her roommates, Johnathon Rick, 38, and Cynthia Anderson, 36, before she was discovered on Aug. 13, 2011.

Rick and Anderson have pleaded not guilty to a collective 11 charges. Their roommate, a 27-year-old woman with cerebral palsy and a slight intellectual delay, says she was subjected to four years of captivity and abuse.

Her identity is protected by court order.

The woman testified she made a list Friday night after court of other indignities and injuries.

“I’m really upset. I want to tell you guys what happened,” she said while testifying from a closed-circuit TV suite in the courthouse.

She said there were other whippings with pieces of cable to her ears, back and arm. She said she would be hit until she bled, then warned she’d be hit again if she got blood on the carpet.
