Bloodthirsty and disgusting criminals who beat their own relative – and you won’t believe what they did to the baby. Caution: this story is graphic and may offend some readers.
A 14-year-old girl who was impregnated by a relative was beaten by four other family members to induce an abortion, Dallas police say.
After the eight-month pregnant girl delivered, the family tried to cover up the crime by burning the stillborn baby on a charcoal grill at a Pleasant Grove home, police say.
Cedric Jones, 27; Sharon Jones, 45; Cecila McDonald, 25; and Lonnell McDonald, 27, were arrested Tuesday on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity. They were being held in the Dallas County jail, with bail set at $150,00 each.
The relationships among the suspects and the victim were not clear late Tuesday.
The hours-long attack allegedly occurred in 2013, but the girl stayed quiet until another woman, who said she witnessed part of the assault, took her to a police station May 22.
The girl said she became pregnant after she was sexually assaulted by a family member in August 2012 in the 1200 block of North Masters Drive, near Lake June Road, according to an affidavit.
