HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — An Alabama man and his girlfriend have been convicted on multiple charges after prosecutors say he directed the woman to rape his 11-year-old autistic son because he thought the child was gay.

AL.com reports a Madison County jury on Tuesday found 29-year-old Sean Cole and Khadeijah Moore guilty of rape, sodomy and sexual abuse of a child younger than 12.

Prosecutor Tim Douthit said Cole asked the then-20-year-old Moore to perform sex acts on his visiting child in November 2016, after finding him in a “compromising position” with another boy.

The boy lived in Georgia with his mother, who reported what happened to Huntsville police.

Moore was out on bail and didn’t show up for trial. She is considered a fugitive.

Sentencing is scheduled for May 24.
