A probable cause affidavit detailed the sexual abuse reportedly committed against a 10-year-old girl by friends of her family who were charged by police last week.
The 10-year-old victim first reported to her school counselor that she had been molested by family friends on March 26, a probable cause affidavit stated. She told her counselor the abuse began when she was 8 years old, and identified the perpetrators as Michael Mulkey, 50, and Martha Mulkey, 47.
This incident was reported to the Odessa Police Department, the affidavit detailed. The victim’s mother told detectives her daughter had started going to the Mulkey residence for weekly counseling sessions after the death of her father and grandfather and, unbeknownst to her, was being sexually molested by the Mulkeys.
Following a forensic interview, the affidavit stated, the victim told detectives the last incident of sexual abuse occurred Christmas Day in 2017.
The victim told police Martha Mulkey had begun by showing her pornographic videos on her phone from various websites, and that some of the videos were of the Mulkeys having sex, the report detailed. She added that on weekly occasions, throughout the two-year span, Martha Mulkey would ask her to penetrate her vagina and perform oral sex on her.
She told detectives that during this time, Ray Mulkey would also have her touch his penis and have her perform oral sex on him, the affidavit stated, which Martha Mulkey showed her how to do.
The victim told police that during this time, the Mulkeys would also penetrate her, either digitally or with a sex toy.
Both Mulkeys were charged on April 10 with continuous sexual abuse of a child and four counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child, first-degree felonies, and two counts of indecency with a child, sexual contact, a second-degree felony.
Jail records show both Mulkeys were taken to the Ector County Detention Center April 10. Michael Mulkey has six bonds totaling $1.45 million and Martha Mulkey has six bonds totaling $1.2 million.
