Fort Wayne woman allegedly sold her daughter, 13, to man, 27

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say a Fort Wayne woman allegedly sold her 13-year-old daughter to a 27-year-old man before she and her husband forced her to marry him and then celebrated the wedding with a party.

The girl's mother is charged in Allen County with child selling where the defendant transfers or receives property for terminating the care of a dependent and neglect of a dependent.

The Journal Gazette reports the man, Zee Kdee Ya, is charged with child solicitation and neglect of a dependent.

The girl told police her parents signed paperwork in Burmese to arrange the marriage.

Online court records did not list attorneys Friday for Ya and the girl's mother.
