Court documents reveal new information about a Lauderdale County couple accused of sexual abuse and making child pornography.

Patricia and Matthew Ayers face child pornography charges along with sexual abuse, sodomy and rape charges.

Investigators said the crimes happened in Lauderdale County but were discovered when pictures were sent to a man in Madison County.

Court documents state a Lauderdale County Sheriff's investigator confiscated thumb drives, computers, CD/DVD's, and cell phones from the Ayers home on County Road 298.

Investigators say some of that equipment had numerous pictures of a small child being molested. The investigator says Matthew Ayers was the individual performing sexual acts on the young girl.

 

Both Patricia and Matthew Ayers have bond set at $1-million. They both have court appearances scheduled for February 4.
