12/2/2014 Related Story: Two Oklahoma City Women Arrested For Child Abuse
Oklahoma City Police arrested 43-year-old Becky Truelove and 45-year-old Lisa Vanetten for Child Abuse.
The incident occurred in early October when the girl was spotted in a school hallway in Southwest Oklahoma City, with injuries to her face. Her school uniform was also very dirty and smelled of animals.
According to reports, the girl claimed to have been punched in the face by her “father," the girlfriend of her aunt who is the sole custodian. The girl is forced to call her aunt's lesbian lover “dad." Also, she said they had 10 dogs and 13 cats in the residence.
She told authorities that this is a normal pattern of abuse.
The girl was placed in the care of DHS.
Now, court documents outline sex crimes involving two different underage victims.
Initially both of the women were charged , one with Child Abuse and the other for enabling it, but now both of them have been rearrested and are in the Oklahoma County Jail Friday night.
You could see broken windows and an overflowing mailbox from the outside of the home, but once you got to the front door there was a hint of what authorities said was inside. You could smell it from the porch. The conditions were deplorable, but how two young girls were abused police said, is unspeakable.
Court documents did the talking, and in a probable cause affidavit just filed against Lisa Vanetten it stated Vanetten and her lesbian partner Becky Truelove sexually abused two girls who were in their care. The document stated for years the girls were assaulted and Vanetten and Truleove touched the girls private areas, made the girls go into their bedroom and undress and "forced to watch Truelove and Vanetten have sex."
In another document filed against Truelove it described sex acts the couple would perform on the girls. It also stated the couple tried using a sex toy on one of the girls.
Both women are behind bars facing additional charges of sexual abuse of a minor.
News 9 was told both their bonds have been increased with this new case.
It's hard to believe that neighbors did not have any idea of the wretched conditions these girls were living in. Is our fear of getting involved in something like this stronger than our love or compassion for abused young girls? It is just disgraceful that it went on for years and no-one reported it.
