Missouri husband and wife, Larry Dykes, Alicia Dykes arrested for keeping teen sex slave

A Missouri couple have been charged with repeatedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl whom a prosecutor alleges was kept as a “sex slave.”

Larry and Alicia Dykes of Strafford, both age 42, were charged with felonies centering around the handcuffing and blindfolding a girl during rape. Webster County Prosecutor Ben Berkstresser described the situation, stating the girl was trapped  “primarily as a sex slave.”

“This couple had this girl as a sex slave,” said Berkstresser.

She was forced to perform oral sex on Larry Dykes — some days as often as three times, according to court documents.

Larry Dykes is charged with 10 counts of either statutory sodomy or rape. Alicia Dykes is charged with three counts of statutory sodomy.

Court records say the girl was younger than 14 when the alleged abuse began in 2016. Larry Dykes could face up to life in prison if convicted on all charges.

Both suspects are being held in the Webster County Jail with $500,000 bonds.
