EATON, Ohio (WDTN) - Eaton Police say a grand jury has indicted a woman and her boyfriend after both tried to cover up his reported rape of her teenage daughter.
Robert Mathes, 29, is facing rape, sexual battery and other charges.
Police say Mathes' girlfriend, 32-year-old Elizabeth George, will also face felony charges for her role in what happened.
The chief tells 2 NEWS that Mathes assaulted the girl at a Wadsworth Street house where the family used to live.
Police opened a case against him in May of last year, but nothing came of it because they say George convinced her daughter to not go through with it.
In March of this year, the girl went to a different family member and the case was reopened.
"It was very frustrating for us because we believed it to be occurring but didn't have the evidence to move forward with charges so unfortunately it continued," says Eaton Police Chief Chad DePew.
Police say the victim is out of Preble County now and is doing much better.
