Missouri – Last December, Jessica Howell’s four-month-old daughter was raped and strangled by her boyfriend. He is currently awaiting trial, but now prosecutors have also charged Jessica after they say she knew her boyfriend was a child predator and even encouraged him to rape her daughter.
I was staying away from this one after posting the story about the 9-month-old who suffered “total destruction” of the vagina, but Jessica deserves to be on the site. Be warned, if you don’t want your day ruined, skip the rest of this article.
Jordan Prince was accused of the rape and murder of Ashlyn Peters on December 3, 2012. He was watching the four-month-old while her mother, Jessica, was sleeping. At some point he became frustrated when she would not stop crying and strangled her to death. Police allege the source of her discomfort was because Prince had sexually assaulted the girl.
It sounds strange to say this, but the strangulation was actually a blessing because the baby was in Hell. Had Ashlynn not been strangled to death, she would have died from the injuries inflicted on her anus. According to the criminal complaint:
“Ashlynn was sexually assaulted causing multiple tears to her anus, a massive laceration to her rectum with massive hematoma to the area of the pelvis. The injuries to the anus and rectum of Ashlynn were sufficient to eventually cause her death even without the strangulation.”
Prince was subsequently arrested and is currently in jail on charges of first-degree murder, abuse of a child and forcible sodomy. Now, finally, prosecutors have charged Jessica with abuse and second-degree murder. They allege she knew Prince had a previous conviction for sexual offense against a minor. Even more sickening is their claim that Jessica admitted to sending Prince text messages suggesting her willingness to allow him to rape Ashlynn.
“In those text messages she suggested and encouraged some unspeakable things,” St. Charles Prosecuting Attorney Tim Lohmar said. “It is very, very disturbing.”
