A US woman who let her husband father four kids with one of their daughters was jailed 7 years

HARRISONVILLE (Missouri) - A US woman whose husband fathered four babies with one of the couple's daughters has been sentenced to seven years in prison after pleading guilty to child endangerment and hindering prosecution of a felony. Prosecutors say the woman knew about the abuse but didn't stop it. Her husband was sentenced last June to life in prison after being convicted of second-degree murder and abandonment of a corpse. Three of the four children the man had with his daughter died, including one whose body was found in a shallow grave in eastern Oklahoma where the family apparently lived for a short time. The murder charge stemmed from the death of a child who died after falling ill. The Associated Press is not identifying the parents to protect the victims' identities. -- AP
