Duncan mother and daughter arrested on complaints of incest
DUNCAN, Okla. (KOKH) —
An Oklahoma woman and her daughter have been arrested after police say they married each other.
Comanche County records show 41-year-old Patricia Spann and 25-year-old Misty Spann filed for a marriage license in March 2016.
KSWO reports an investigation into Patricia and Misty Spann began by the Department of Human Services in August.
The investigator tells KSWO that Misty and her brothers were raised by a grandparent after Patricia lost custody of them. Patricia allegedly told the investigator that she didn't believe she was breaking the law because she wasn't listed on Misty's birth certificate.
Patricia also told DHS that the two hit it off after reuniting two years ago.
KSWO reports that Patricia also married one of her sons in 2008, that marriage ended in annulment in 2010. Both Patricia and Misty were arrested Sept. 7 and booked through the Stephens County Jail on a complaint of incest.
