The father and daughter in this story hail from North Carolina and they have quite the disturbing tale to tell. Steven and Kadie fell in love with each other and they planned to become married. They even had a child together. Fortunately, they were caught before they had a chance to walk down the aisle. Local authorities received tips that allowed them to catch up to this “couple” before it was too late.
In the wake of their arrest, bond was set at $1 million for each of them. Steven has since been released on bond and Kadie remains imprisoned. They each face a prison sentence of up to 10 years if they are convicted. This is the maximum sentence allowable for incest related convictions in the state of North Carolina. However, it is believed that their relationship began in Virginia.
Their story has taken some twists and turns. Kadie did not spend her childhood around Steven. He had given her up for adoption when she was a baby. Once Kadie turned 18, she reached out to her father through social media. It did not take long before Kadie moved in to Steven’s home to live with him and the rest of his family.
He was residing with his wife at the time (they have since divorced) and their two children. Before Steven’s ex wife even had a chance to move out, he had already begun to make advances towards Kadie. She confronted Steven about these vile behaviors. She even asked if he was the father of Kadie’s child. He was truthful about the matter and told her that he intended to marry his daughter.
According to the arrest warrant that was issued for Stephen, he had asked the children to refer to Kadie as their new stepmother. The child is no longer with the couple and is currently being cared for by child welfare services. The courts have yet to rule on the fate of this couple. At the current moment, there are no court dates scheduled in this case.
All we know for sure is that these two are facing a lengthy prison stint if they are found guilty of this crime. Incest is a matter that should always be taken with an utmost level of seriousness. Terrifying monsters such as Steven must be imprisoned before they are given another chance to act on their urges.
