St. Charles, MO (KSDK) - A woman who babysat for her neighbors children at a mobile home community near O'Fallon is set for arraignment today on charges she raped and sodomized the little girls.

30 year old Rebecca Sue Russell lived in the Tee Kay Mobile Home Manor near O'Fallon when she was arrested and charged with multiple counts of statutory sodomy, rape, and child molestation.

Prosecutors say one of the victims was a seven month old infant, the other two little girls were three and five years old when the crimes took place between January 2011 and this past April.

Investigators say Russell was the mother of one and godmother of the other two children who were violated.

Two other people are facing charges in the case including Russell's boyfriend, 27 year old John Scott Thomas and the couples friend Billy Joe Bunch.

Authorities say it's one of the worst cases of sexual abuse of children they've ever seen.
