[Ed. – A family that ‘plays’ together…]
A Missouri woman was charged Tuesday with child abuse and endangerment after police say she admitted in an audio recording to seeing her 2-year-old girl raped repeatedly.
Police say Azzie Watson, 25, of Independence, Missouri, was recorded by her boyfriend saying she watched two men rape her daughter. She later recanted that statement, saying she lied at the time because she was physically intimidated.
Her 2-year-old girl tested positive for chlamydia and had meth in her system, according to court documents.
Watson told police officers the only man she brings her daughter around is her boyfriend, Charles Green, who has also been charged with multiple counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
No rape charges have yet been filed said Michael Mansur, director of communication for the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, in an emailed statement on Thursday. An investigation into other charges or defendants is ongoing, he said.
Watson’s daughter and her 1-year-old son had metal shards in their feet, which require surgery to remove, according to a police report.
