MARSHFIELD, Mo. -- A husband and wife are accused of smoking marijuana and watching pornography with their teenage son. A judge issued warrants for the arrests of the couple from Rogersville.
Caterine Carson and Lee Murdock face several charges, including endangering the welfare of a child. The Webster County prosecuting attorney says her office found out about the parents' actions while detectives were investigating allegations that the teenage son molested at least three young children.
During the investigation, detectives say they found out the boy is a victim of his own parents. According to court documents, Carson and Murdock admitted that they smoked marijuana with their son. Detectives also say they admitted watching child and adult porn with him, and having child porn on the family computer.
The prosecutor says the boy is in state custody and receiving a lot of counseling. She can't say whether he will face charges in Juvenile Court.
