A woman has admitted helping her husband keep a young woman as a sex slave in their rural home.

The Kansas City Star reports that Marilyn Bagley’s plea agreement recommends she be sentenced to probation.

The 47-year-old Bagley pleaded guilty to conspiring to help her husband sexually enslave the woman, who was 16 when she moved in with them.

Bagley and her husband, Edward Bagley, were scheduled for trial in February on several charges, including sex trafficking.

Prosecutors allege Edward Bagley persuaded the girl to live with the couple in Lebanon, Missouri.

They said she was given drugs and tortured until she was hospitalised in February 2009.

The Bagleys have said the sex acts were consensual and part of the sexual lifestyle they practiced.
