(Scroll down for video) A woman and her stepson were arrested on charges of incest after it was discovered that they were having a sexual relationship.

The woman of Savai’i Island in Samoa, was married to a much older man and slept with his teenage son behind her husband’s back.

Her brother-in-law discovered the cheating, and he reported the woman and her stepson to police.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Sala’a Moananu Sala’a, said the alleged relationship between the 26-year-old woman and her now 18-year-old stepson began in 2015.

The pair is scheduled to appear in Supreme Court before Chief Justice His Honour Patu Tiava’asue Falefatu Sapolu.

This comes just days after another case of incest made headlines in the same area in which a biological brother and sister pleaded guilty to charges of incest.

The 26-year-old woman and her 18-year-old brother appeared before the Chief Justice His Honour Patu Tiava’asue Falefatu Sapolu.

Despite their mother’s opposition, the siblings declined the judge’s officer for a lawyer and they pleaded guilty to the charges instead. They will be sentenced at a later date.

Acting Assistant Commissioner Sala’a Moananu Sala’a said the incident was reported to police by the pastor of the church that the siblings attended.

The pastor called police after suspecting that the siblings were engaged in a sexual relationship.

The pastor reportedly said that “this is a very serious offense which cannot be tolerated as it goes against our beliefs.”
