NEWS24.CO.ID -  A mother and father raped their two year-old daughter and hatched a plot to rape their unborn baby, court documents claim. 

Gerrad Coddington, 25, and his wife Christina Nelson-Coddington, 29, reportedly beat, handcuffed and raped their toddler daughter. 

Court papers filed Wednesday revealed that Gerrad, of Oklahoma City, also conspired to rape his unborn child. He and his wife are said to have handcuffed, beaten and raped other vulnerable victims in their care. KFOR reported that the pair were originally arrested on June 14 on charges of manufacturing child pornography, lewd acts with a minor, and violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.

The first charge stems from their alleged decision to share child sex abuse images on Facebook. FBI agents homed in on the couple after a tip-off about ‘activity on the internet that suggested there was a minor being exploited,’ according to Oklahoma Attorney General Mike Hunter.

Hunter added: ‘The investigation discloses that the crimes that involve the minor child are incredibly distressing.’ An ongoing investigation into the couple saw upgraded charges including first-degree child rape, incest and child abuse filled earlier this week.

The US Attorney General’s Office is also pursuing production of child pornography charges against the couple. That charge carries a maximum 20 year sentence in Oklahoma, but up to 10 years longer if a conviction is obtained in a federal court. The Coddingtons are being held in Garvin County Jail in lieu of $5million bond each ahead of their next court appearance.
