KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP/WWJ) - A 25-year-old Missouri woman is accused of letting two men rape her 2-year-old daughter.

Azzie Watson of Independence, near Kansas City, was charged Tuesday with child abuse and endangerment. She's jailed on a $75,000 bond.

According to a report by The Kansas City Star, the shocking crime was discovered last month when the terrified child's new foster parent tried to change her diaper. 

WDAF-TV reports that court documents said Watson's boyfriend recorded Watson talking about repeatedly taking her daughter to a house where her daughter was raped about five times. She says on the recording that she watched, although she knew what was happening was “was bad and so wrong.” Police were given the recording last month while responding to a rape report at a hospital.

Court documents stated Watson told detectives that what she said in the recording was a lie because she was scared of her boyfriend, 43-year-old Charles Green.

Watson also said she didn't know how her daughter, who also had methamphetamine in her system, contracted a sexually transmitted disease. WDAF reported medical records said there were "foreign metallic objects" found in both the girl's feet, and the feet of her 1-year-old brother. 

Green has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, according to the newspaper. As for the men who allegedly assaulted the child, no arrests have been made as the case remains under investigation, a Kansas City police spokesman said.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Watson.
