This couple of incestuous monsters from Alabama has been charged with sexually abusing two young children – relatives – in a case that outraged authorities and a local news organization deemed too “heinous” to publish.
Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry called it “one of the worst child sexual abuse cases I have seen in my career.”
Amber Maritta Cartwright, 24, and boyfriend Zachary Levi Burns, 23, were arrested Wednesday in a town about 50 miles north of Birmingham on charges of sodomy, sexual abuse of a child less than 12 years old and enticing a child for immoral purpose, the sheriff’s office said.
The ugly scallywag, Cartwright, of Crane Hill, Ala., was also charged with incest, police said.

Cartwright and Burns would engage in sex acts with each other and then force the children to participate, according to reports.
“It’s pure evil!” Gentry said. The extent of what took place was revealed when the children told a relative, who reported it to authorities.
“These children are very brave for coming forward to help us put these predators behind bars,” Gentry said. “There is no punishment severe enough for these two that fits this crime.”
The victims are in state care. Sheriff’s office investigators worked with the Department of Human Resources, Child Advocacy Center, and the Cullman County District Attorney’s Office.
