DALLAS – Dallas police say four relatives beat their pregnant 14-year-old cousin to force her to have an abortion. The girl who is now 16, says a fifth family member is the one who raped her and got her pregnant.

The teen called for help last month, more than two years after the attack.

“Sometime in early 2013, the family members began physically assaulting the victim to the point where the victim gave birth to a stillborn child,” Deputy Chief Gil Garza explained. “Family members disposed of the child’s remains.”

All five family members have been arrested and are locked up at the Dallas County Jail.
