  • The wife of "Master Ed" is now facing federal charges.

The wife of "Master Ed" Bagley was indicted Tuesday for her alleged role in the Missouri sex slave case. Earlier this week, Marilyn Bagley, Master Ed, Michael "Rodent" Stokes and Bradley Cook were charged in an 18-count superseding indictment returned by a grand jury.

The feds allege that the Bagleys engaged in sex and sexual torture with a mentally deficient woman whom they enticed into moving into their Lebanon, Missouri, trailer home when she was 16. They allegedly promised her that she'd have a "great life" and would become a model and a dancer. They were allegedly grooming her to become a sex slave, using Internet and BDSM porn to train her when she was a minor.



The feds allege that Edward Bagley "beat, whipped, flogged,

suffocated, choked, electrocuted, caned, skewered, drowned, mutilated,

hung and caged FV [female victim] to coerce her to become a sex slave."

The

feds became interested in Master Ed in February 2009 after the woman

was

rushed to a hospital in cardiac arrest. Bagley had allegedly suffocated

and electrocuted her during a torture session. Among the allegations in

the indictment, Bagley is accused of sewing the

woman's "urinary opening and vagina shut" to demonstrate what was

"expected of her," nailing her labia and nipples to slabs of wood, and

performing abortions on the girl.

Marilyn Bagley is accused of modeling "slave clothes" when they were allegedly recruiting the girl. Edward Bagley allegedly gave the girl marijuana and Ecstasy and showed her pornography and sadomasochism images. The feds allege that Bagley began sexually abusing the girl while she was still a minor.

The sexual torture allegedly began in February 2004 when she turned 18. Bagley allegedly had her sign a slave contract.

Marilyn Bagley is accused of posing in photographs, taken by Edward

Bagley, in which she allegedly sexually abused the girl. Marilyn Bagley

is also accused of telling the girl to "do as she was told" and refusing

to offer her help when the girl expressed fear of Edward Bagley. The

feds allege that Marilyn Bagley benefited financially from her role in the

sex trafficking scheme.



Edward Bagley is accused of threatening to kill the girl if she cried

for help or asked him to stop. Bagley kept several guns in the home, and

he's accused of shooting animals that the girl cared for in front of

her. He also allegedly bragged that there were bodies buried in the

woods behind his trailer, and he allegedly threatened to bury her alive

and showed her a video of how he'd do it.


Edward Bagley is also accused of advertising the girl online for sexual

torture in live online sessions or in person. Stokes and Cook are

accused of participating as customers, who paid Bagley to sexually abuse

and torture the woman.

The feds

also allege that the young woman was forced to work at local strip clubs. If that wasn't

enough, the new indictment also has charges of a murder-for-hire scheme,

witness and victim tampering and witness

retaliation, possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence,

and child pornography.



Edward Bagley is accused of having the girl tattooed to mark her as his

property, including a bar code on her neck, a tribal tattoo on her back

with the letter AS@ to mark her as a slave, and the Chinese symbol for

slave on her ankle.



Cook is accused of watching the live Internet video of the girl

being sexually abused and tortured, and downloaded pictures of the girl

to his computer. Cook is accused of sending images to Edward Bagley of

women in his residence whom he beat, bound and tied up to share ideas of

how to abuse the girl. Cook is accused of using those torture methods

on the girl when he visited the Bagley residence. Cook gave Bagley a

hard drive with sadomasochism and torture videos downloaded from the

Internet, including videos demonstrating to Bagley how he could bury the

girl alive.



Cook is also charged with allegedly trying to hire someone to kill the woman.

He is also accused of attempting witness and victim tampering.

Stokes allegedly traveled to the Bagleys' residence and engaged in both

sexually torturing FV and watching Edward Bagley torture FV. Stokes

allegedly gave Bagley steaks, cigarettes, coats, clothing, lighters and

cash in exchange for watching torture shows and actually sexually

torturing the girl. He also is accused of paying $1,000 for Bagley to

transport the girl to California in December 2006 for a photo shoot.

Stokes is also accused of paying Bagley $300 for a torture session and

giving Bagley money to build a homemade device to sexually torture the

girl.



Stokes is also accused of receiving child pornography over the Internet

and possessing child pornography.



The Bagleys, Cook and Stokes are all charged with sex trafficking by

force, fraud or coercion and using the Internet to facilitate the

unlawful activity.

The Bagleys are also charged with forced labor trafficking and document

servitude.

Edward Bagley is charged with using the Internet to entice a minor to

engage in illicit sex, enticement to travel for illicit sexual activity,

transportation for illicit sexual activity, possessing a firearm in

furtherance of a crime of violence, conspiracy to distribute a

controlled substance to a person under the age of 21, and being a drug

user in possession of firearms and ammunition.



Master Ed, Rodent and Cook, who used the moniker "PutHer2GoodUse," are all in federal custody.

If convicted for commercial sex trafficking, they face a a mandatory

minimum sentence of 15 years in federal prison without parole.

Convictions for either commercial sex trafficking or forced labor

trafficking that involves aggravated sexual abuse will get you a maximum

penalty of life in federal prison without parole.

Among the things the feds are trying to take away from Bagley: $112,200, two computers, 11 firearms, sex toys and paraphernalia and

torture devices.
