Federal prosecutors have filed more charges in a sex-trafficking case from Lebanon, Mo., where a young woman was allegedly kept as a sex slave. The alleged ringleader's wife is now a defendant. From Mark Morris:
According to the indictment, Marilyn Bagley helped recruit the young woman to live in the trailer she shared with her husband, Edward Bagley, in a wooded area near Lebanon, Mo. Marilyn Bagley also allegedly sexually tortured the young woman to coerce and groom her to become her husband’s “sex slave.”
The indictment alleged that Marilyn Bagley told the young woman that she had no choice but to submit to electric torture with a crank telephone. She later allegedly warned the young woman to “do as she was told” or she would see “Violent Ed,” presumably Edward Bagley.
One of the existing suspects, Brad Cook, faces new charges of planning to have the young woman killed.
