A mum has been accused of arranging for her 10-year-old child to be raped before being killed while she watched.

Police claim Michelle Martens used the app Plenty of Fish to arrange for the sick attack on her daughter Victoria.

It is alleged that her boyfriend and his cousin carried out the rape before killing the child.

The child's body was found in a New Mexico apartment, with authorities claiming that she was given drugs before the attack took place.

The 35-year-old mum has admitted inviting boyfriend Fabian Gonzales and his cousin Jessica Kelley to carry out the attack, according to police.

A court heard transcripts from police interviews which reveal that on August 23 – a day after Victoria’s tenth birthday - she watched as the attack took place.

It is claimed that the mum then had sex with Gonzales 20 minutes after the attack.

The mum told police that she watched her daughter be raped by the pair at least three times, it is claimed.

Gonzales and his cousin Kelley are accused of then burning Victoria's remains in a burning blanket.

The trio are set to stand trial for the child's death.
