Beit She'an couple indicted for rape of daughter

Prosecutors presented an indictment to the Nazareth district court on Tuesday alleging that a Beit She'an couple raped their 15 year-old daughter as her toddler brother looked on. According to the indictment, the mother held the teenager as the drunken father disrobed and then raped the girl. The couple's 3 year-old son witnessed the assault, according to the charge sheet. Prosecutors requested that the suspects be held during the proceedings. The girl and her brother were turned over to social services following the arrests of the parents. Police initially learned of the case on November 18th when social services told them the girl's parents were refusing to let her enter their apartment.
