Parents allegedly raped and sodomised their two pre-teen daughters and made movies of the horrific abuse for several years.
The mother, 32, and father, 42, allegedly put their daughters, now 12 and 14, through horrific sexual abuse described by senior police as “as bad as it gets”, reports The Courier Mail.
They are facing charges including incest, rape, sodomy and creating child exploitation material.
The alleged abuse came to light after one of the girls told a friend about their ordeal.
Townsville Child Protection Investigation Unit officer-in-charge Detective Senior Sergeant Dave Miles said the alleged abuse happened over four years until police were alerted last month.
“(We allege) both mum and dad have actively engaged in the sexual abuse of both children and the charges reflect the severity of the actions we’ve been able to identify at this stage,” he said.
“The investigation is not complete,” Sen-Sgt Miles said.
