BETHANY, Oklahoma – A Bethany couple is accused of having sex with a canine and soliciting sex with a minor.

On November 29, Bethany police were notified by a girl's guardian in Dallas, Texas of alleged sexual abuse of the 13-year-old. The teen had been living with her aunt, her aunt's husband and three male cousins all under the age of 15 in Bethany.

The teen told a family member in Texas she saw video recordings of her aunt having sexual intercourse with a dog. The 13-year-old also said she found emails between her aunt and aunt's husband discussing sexual dreams involving the children in the house. The teen also had another email, that police said was drafted by the two adults, encouraging the 13-year-old to have sex with her aunt's husband.

Investigators obtained a search warrant and seized video recording equipment, DVDs and computer equipment from the house. Police reviewed the evidence and said they found several recordings of the couple having sexual relations with a canine. Investigators also found six grams of marijuana and paraphernalia in the home.

Brandy T. Double and Edward James Double were arrested and charged with crimes against nature, conspiracy to commit a felony, facilitating/encouraging/offering and/or soliciting sexual conduct or engaging in sexual communication with a minor, indecent exposure-indecent exhibitions of obscene material or child pornography-solicitation of minors, possession of marijuana in the presence of a child under 12, possession of paraphernalia and maintaining a disorderly house.

All four children were taken into protective custody. Investigators plan to interview the children to determine if they were sexually assaulted by the couple.
