A young mom identified as Azzie Watson, has been arrested by the police in Missouri for reportedly allowing men to repeatedly rape her two-year-old daughter, who then contracted a sexually transmitted disease.
The bond of the 25-year-old mom who was charged on Tuesday with child abuse and endangerment, was set at $75,000.
The disturbing case came to limelight on June 29, when police were called to a hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, for a report of a rape, according to Kansas City Star. Court documents alleged that Watson’s boyfriend recorded the mother-of-two talking about repeatedly taking her eldest daughter to a house where the toddler was raped by two men about five times.
She says on the recording that she watched the sexual assaults and called herself ‘a coward.’ Her arrest however came when the police were handed the recording of Watson’s alleged confession, leading to her arrest on an unrelated charge of failure to appear in court.
However when interviewed by detectives in jail last week, Watson claimed that what she said in the recording was a lie because she was scared of her boyfriend.
Detectives informed the mother-of-two that her two-year-old daughter tested positive for an STD and also had methamphetamine in her system. Both the little girl and her one-year-old brother were also found to have foreign metal objects lodged in their feet, apparently from walking barefoot inside their mother’s home littered with debris and other objects.
Watson further alleged that she did not know how her daughter contracted a sexually transmitted disease.
Both of her children’s have been living with a foster parent since June, and it was the siblings’ caregiver who took them to the hospital on June 29 after the two-year-old girl, who never met her father, told the woman as she was changing her diaper, ‘Daddy hurt me.’
