Warrants: Parents smoked pot, viewed porn with son

MARSHFIELD, Mo. | A southwest Missouri husband and wife are accused of smoking marijuana and watching pornography with their teenage son.

Webster County prosecutors said Wednesday that Catherine Carson and Lee Murdock of Rogersville face several charges, including endangering the welfare of a child. Arrest warrants have been issued for the couple, but authorities said they were not in custody Wednesday.

KY3-TV in Springfield reports that detectives found out about the parents' actions while they investigated allegations that the teenage son molested at least three young children.

Prosecutors said the boy is in state custody and is undergoing counseling. They couldn't say whether the teen will face charges in Juvenile Court.

Court documents say Carson and Murdock admitted that they smoked pot and watched pornography with their son.
