A mother has been charged with the murder of her 5-year-old daughter who she allegedly sold for sex to her male friend, police say .
According to police documents, Kristy Marie Siple, 35, accepted money from a man who wanted to have sex with her child, Kamarie Holland who was just aged 5.
Kamarie, who lived in Columbus, Georgia, US with her mom, was found dead Dec. 13, 2021 in an abandoned house just across the state border in Phenix City.
The mum had just reported her daughter missing that morning.
After a two-week investigation, police arrested the mum on December 28 and charged her with the murder of the child. Another person involved, 37-year-old man Jeremy Williams, is also accused of murder in the case.
According to police, the mum took the money from Williams and let him rape her daughter, local Georgia news agency, CBS affiliate WRBL reported.
Police also allege the mum and Williams had a ‘relationship’ in the past.
Police also said that Williams was the former owner of the abandoned Phenix City home where Kamarie was found dead.
Police said young girl Kamarie had been sexually assaulted and asphyxiated. Both Williams and Siple are being held in local jails without bond, according to WRBL.
Kamarie’s father, Corey Holland, reacting to the allegations said;
“She’s a monster,” he told WRBL.
“A real mother protects and would die for her children. Kristy is a monster. My family and I will continue to wrestle with the loss of our angel Kamarie.”
