Patricia Ann Spann, 43, and her daughter Misty Velvet Dawn Spann, 25, were married in March, police learned last month while conducting a child welfare investigation. Authorities later found out Patricia Spann had married her son in 2008, who filed for annulment 15 months later citing "incest."
Patricia Spann told child service investigators that she'd lost custody of three children, who were adopted by their paternal grandmother. Spann said she thought it was OK to marry her daughter because her name wasn't on Misty Spann's birth certificate. She reunited with her daughter two years ago, the AP reported.
