The victim, now 19, was 13 years old when she was raped by her brother Robert Cayald, now 24
According to The Dallas Morning News, the victim, now 19, was eight months pregnant when she was attacked in 2013.
The relatives first forced the teen to take birth control pills and cinnamon tablets to try to abort the baby. When that didn’t work, they held down her and took turns stomping on her pregnant stomach until she miscarried.
Sharon Jones, 47, was sentenced to 12 years; her daughter, Cecila McDonald, 28, was sentenced to seven years; and her 29-year-old son, Cedric Jones Jr, was sentenced to five years in prison.
The baby was stillborn and placed in a five-gallon bucket and the family tried to burn the remains on a grill. When they were unsuccessful, Jones gave her son $25 to dispose of the body. He hid the remains in a bag in an unknown location.
Each pleaded guilty to felony family violence aggravated assault.
Defense attorneys for the trio argued that the attack was a small mark on an otherwise clean record. They said the defendants had been part of Bible studies and classes in jail and should be granted leniency.
Another man, Lonnell McDonald, received 10 years in prison in 2016 after being convicted of aggravated assault in the attack.
