Wife Of Husband Who Allegedly Told Kids ‘Incest Is Normal’ Filing For Divorce

The dog days may be over for one Indiana woman accused of incest and bestiality.

Sheila’s trial has been set for July and Keylin’s has been set for August, according to court documents. Both face some pretty disturbing allegations.
