LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas mother and stepfather have been arrested on 34 criminal charges stemming from allegations they sexually assaulted their children for more than a decade.
Records showed that 44-year-old Fred Vonseydewitz and his 48-year-old wife, Mary Vonseydewitz, were being held Tuesday at the Clark County jail.
They'll be due for court appearances on 20 sex assault and 14 lewdness charges each.
Police say an investigation began this month after one of the couple's children reported incestuous sex assaults dating back over the last 12 years.
Police Officer Bill Cassell, a department spokesman, wouldn't say how many children were allegedly involved or identify their ages and genders.
Police say they don't believe there were victims other than the family children. The parents had no prior arrest record.
