Jury hands up more indictments to Beemers, accused of raping their baby

Staff report


A Trumbull County grand jury has handed up additional indictments against a Warren couple accused of raping their biological daughter while visiting her at the Trumbull County Children Services office on Reeves Road.

The additional charges — pandering obscenity involving a minor — could add 10 more years to the prison sentence if Felicia Banks Beemer, 21, and Cody Beemer, 23, are convicted.

The additional charges accuse both Beemers of possessing 532 obscene photographs or depictions involving a minor between April and September 2011.

Officials have said the Beemers used a cellphone to videotape the reported molestation of their biological daughter and an 18-month-old boy in July 2011.

The new indictments also change the month of the alleged rape of their daughter — April 27, 2011, when the child was 9 months old, not July 2011, when she was nearly a year old.

Both Beemers face charges that could land them in prison for life if they are convicted.

They are in the Trumbull County jail awaiting trial.
