Woman accused of sex with son

By Terry Flynn
The Cincinnati Enquirer

        COVINGTON — A 35-year-old local woman was bound over to the Kenton County grand jury Tuesday by District Court Judge Ann Ruttle on charges that she had sex with her son when the boy was 5 years old.

        The woman, whom the Enquirer is not naming to protect the child's identity, was arrested Dec. 20 following an investigation by Kenton County Police Det. Wayne Wallace. She was charged with rape in the first degree and incest.

        At the preliminary hearing Tuesday, Detective Wallace said the child, who has been living with a foster family for almost two years, told a foster sister about the alleged abuse after attending a safety program at his school.

        State foster care officials were notified, and eventually the boy, now 7 years old, described the same allegations of abuse — which reportedly took place at a house in Ludlow where he and his mother lived at the time — in an interview at the Children's Advocacy Center.

        The mother remains free on $50,000 bond.
