Woman indicted in child abuse case

Corsicana — The wife of one of two brothers sentenced to prison on charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child was herself indicted Thursday in connection with the same investigation.

A Navarro County Grand Jury indicted Felecia Manuere on a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child. Felecia Manuere is married to Noah Manuere, who was sentenced to life in prison on April 9 following his conviction on the same charge.

Tarius Manuere, brother of Noah Manuere, was sentenced to 25 years in prison in October 2013 on a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child, but was found not guilty of continuous sexual assault of a child. The two brothers attempted to flee the country in March 2013 to avoid prosecution, but were captured in Hawaii and returned to Texas to stand trial.

The charge and indictment against Felecia Manuere came as a result of the investigation into the two brothers, said Navarro County District Attorney R. Lowell Thompson.

“We allege that she knew about some of the abuse and did nothing,” Thompson said. “We're charging her as a party in the actual offenses.”

The Grand Jury returned a total of 57 indictments against 45 individuals during Thursday session.
