This is the mentally disabled teenager found dead with her uterus removed inside her family's burned out home - after claiming she had been impregnated by her stepfather.
Holli Jeffcoat, from Lubbock, Texas was found dead on February 10 with her throat cut and womb and uterus removed.
Her stepfather James Holland had been accused of raping her and was arrested in March on three counts of sexual abuse.
Now Holli's mother Debi Holland has been arrested on a charge of aggravated sexual assault. She is accused of having covered up her husband's alleged crimes.
However, no one has been charged in the death of the 18-year-old from Idalou, who was reportedly stabbed in her home before being burned.
According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, Debi Holland's arrest warrant offers harrowing new details about the alleged abuse.
Investigators believed Holland had 'first hand knowledge' of her husband's abuse and was 'allowing' it to continue.
Abuse of the teenager was suspected as early as 2010, when the youngster tested positive for an STD in a blood sample taken following a car crash. No charges were brought against her abuser.
However, in January this year the special needs teenager - who had the mental age of a seven-year-old - told school officials that she didn't want to go home with her stepfather because the 'sex hurt'.
She also said participating in her PE class was painful because she could feel the baby moving inside her - but her mother had told her they could not afford to get rid of the unwanted pregnancy.
In interviews with investigating authorities, Holland initially denied her husband was a drug or alcohol user.
However, she later admitted he had been intravenously using methamphetamine for a long period of time.
