DENVER — (KDVR) – After arresting a stepfather who police say raped his daughter over a period of two years, the search is on for the girl’s mother.

Authorities says that she has raped her daughter, as well.

An arrest affidavit obtained by KDVR-TV states that Kevin Carothers, the man in custody, began the sexual assaults on his 12-year-old step-daughter. It wasn’t until the family moved in with Carothers’ parents that the girl’s mother, Theresa Carothers, began sexually assaulting her, as well.

Kevin, who is a registered sex offender, first inappropriately touched the victim in the summer of 2009. According to the affidavit, those assaults progressed to rape in October of that same year. The girl said Kevin grabbed her in Theresa’s bedroom, pushed her down on the bad, ripped off her pajamas and had intercourse with her.
