The following story reads totally and completely indicative of stereotypical red neck behavior.
On Tuesday, an Oklahoma woman who tied the knot with her mom, pleaded guilty to committing incest.
Tulsa Word reports that Misty Spann, 26, was sentenced to 10 years in prison — the maximum penalty — for marrying her biological mother, Patricia Ann Spann, 44.
Misty was raised by her grandmother after her mom lost custody of her three kids.
Her mom told authorities that the pair reconnected in 2014 and “hit it off.”
In March 2016, the strange mother-daughter duo took their taboo relationship to the next level and got hitched, according to a marriage license application.
Patricia Spann said that she didn’t think the nuptials broke any laws because she was no longer listed as a parent on her daughter’s birth certificate.
Patricia told authorities that she allegedly “looked into” wedding her daughter and determined, erroneously, that marrying Misty would not violate the law because her name was not on an amended birth certificate created when she lost custody of her children.
Their incestuous marriage was discovered by authorities during a child welfare investigation, the Associated Press reported.
This was not the first marriage for Patricia
She also was married to her biological son in 2008. The marriage was annulled 15 months later after the son said it was incestuous.
Patricia was also charged with incest in the case and is scheduled to appear in court in January.
Wait! There’s more…
One of Patricia’s sons, Cody Spann, told PEOPLE previously that his mother is an alleged “predator” who “forced” his brother and sister to marry her – and threatened to kill them if they did not comply.
“I think she’s just a sick, twisted individual that has something messed up in her head,” Cody, 25, said. “Why would you want to be with one of your own kids? Patricia’s a very disgusting and horrible person.”
Cody said Patricia reentered the children’s lives in 2007 or 2008, claiming to be a friend rather than their biological mother. Cody said he, Patricia and his siblings spent some time in Texas where Patricia and Jody became close. The two eventually married, but when the family returned to Oklahoma, everyone learned the truth: that they were related.
“My grandmother looked at my brother and told him that was his mom,” Cody recalled. “My brother … said that he wanted to get away from her – that was not what he wanted. And she threatened to kill him. She threatened to poison him.”
He said Jody was allegedly “manipulated, forced and threatened” after he learned the truth. He said that after that marriage was annulled, Patricia set her sights on Misty, allegedly threatening her with poisoning and kidnapping if Misty refused.
Cody also told PEOPLE his mother allegedly tried to marry him.
“She only tried that once and I told her to get lost,” he alleges. “When she tried coming on to me, I told her that she was my mother. That is disgusting and I would never be with her.”
