A husband and wife of the United Kingdom, were found guilty of sexually assaulting a baby girl.
A court heard how Michael and Lara Chase of Orton Goldhay, Cambridgeshire, took photos of the abuse.
The husband and wife sexually assaulted the 13-month-old baby girl who was left in their care. The jury was shown photos, which was taken by Michael Chase while his wife Lara, 46, was in the room.
52-year-old Michael Chase pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual assault and possession of indecent and extreme images on an earlier date, but his wife denied being involved in the crime.
During a trial at the Peterborough Crown Court, Lara Chase said that she had nothing to do with the abuse. However, the jury did not believe her as she was in the room when her husband took photos of the abuse.
The jury determined that Lara helped her husband carry out the sick abuse on the 13-month-old girl while they were babysitting her.
The couple who got married in June 2014, are now reportedly separated and are awaiting sentencing.
