KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City husband and wife are facing charges stemming from accusations they sexually assaulted and photographed children.

Jackson County prosecutors have charged 62-year-old Robert D. Bess with statutory rape and child molestation, and also charged 52-year-old Jamie Bess with accessory to statutory rape and sexual exploitation of a minor.

Online court records don’t list lawyers for either defendant.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/1UW4Ee8) that court records show Robert Bess is accused of having sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 14 and of molesting a boy under the age of 14. Jamie Bess is accused of creating child pornography by recording one of the incidents of abuse.

Their preliminary hearing is July 5.
