A family assaulted a 14-year-old relative upon finding out that she had been raped by another one of their family members and had become pregnant.
MailOnline: A 14-year-old sexual assault victim impregnated by a family member was beaten by other family members to deliver a still-born baby who then took the remains and burned them on a charcoal grill, prosecutors claim.
The un-named victim was repeatedly assaulted between January and March 2013 when she eventually gave birth to a still born baby at the house in Pleasant Grove in Dallas, Texas.
Prosecutors allege that Cedric Jones, 27, Sharon Jones, 45, Cecilia McDonald, 25 and Lonnell McDonald, 27, were all involved in charges of ‘engaging in organised criminal activity’ following the alleged assault, who according to court documents, are being held on a bond of $150,000 each.
The family allegedly sought to conceal the pregnancy and dispose of the baby, in fear that Dallas Child Protective services would come and remove other children from the home upon hearing about the teen’s initial assault. Determined to end her pregnancy, one of the women force-fed the girl multiple birth-control hormones and home remedies, before resulting to even more extreme measures:
According to an affidavit Sharon Jones is alleged to have given the girl ‘multiple doses’ of birth control pills as well as emergency contraception pills and cinnamon tablets. When the pills failed to abort the baby, Cecilia McDonald is accused of pinning the girl down while Lonnell McDonald ‘repeatedly bounced up and down’ on the girl as well as kicking her. The final assault, according to one witness who accompanied the girl to police, lasted six hours.
It is alleged that the suspects wanted to dispose of the body in case Dallas Child Protective Services came and took away other children from the house because of the initial sexual assault on the victim.
The attack continued until the girl started bleeding heavily and delivered a stillborn baby about two hours later. The affidavit claims the infant’s body was then burned on a charcoal grill. It is claimed that Sharon Jones paid Cedric Jones $25 to ‘take care of the rest of it’, dumping the remains in an unknown location.
