    A 45-year-old mother and her 25-year-old daughter in Oklahoma have been arrested for marrying each other. The duo is facing incest charges after their relationship was discovered by the Department of Human Services. The mother was previously married to one of her sons.
    The mother, Patricia Ann Spann and her daughter Misty Velvet Dawn Spann got married in March 2016 in Comanche County. The mother told the investigators that she was reunited with her children two years ago. The kids were living with their grandmother after she had lost their custody.
    Patricia told the investigators that her relationship with her son was not incestuous, as she had married him only to prevent him from being deployed to the military. However, her son told the police that she manipulated both of them into marriage.
    According to the mother she had not broken any law by marrying her own daughter because her name is no longer listed on her daughter’s birth certificate. In Oklahoma marrying a close relative is considered incest even if the marriage does not have a sexual relationship.
    The case came into light after a child welfare team learnt about the incident. It was then that the detectives found out the woman was also married to one of her two sons in 2008. The son, however, filed an annulment after 15 months citing incest and stating that he was married to his birth mother.
