MADISONVILLE, Texas (AP) — Authorities in Southeast Texas say two people have been arrested on charges they were among a group of 11 involved in the sexual assault of a teenage girl.

Thirty-five-year-old Sondress Lotts and 33-year-old Earl James Tyler remained in the Madison County jail Monday after turning themselves into police over the weekend. They’re each charged with child trafficking and sexual assault of a child.

Lotts is the sole woman in the group of 11 suspects who authorities say were involved in giving the teen methamphetamine in March and then taking her to a Madisonville home where she was assaulted over several hours. Madisonville is about 40 miles northeast of College Station.

All but two of the suspects have been arrested.

Jail records did not indicate attorneys for Lotts and Tyler.
