CINCINNATI, OH (March 23, 2015) — An Ohio woman has been indicted on charges she trafficked her 11-year-old daughter for heroin, and a man is facing rape charges and other counts in the case.

Thirty-year-old April Corcoran has been indicted on 27 counts, including human trafficking, endangering children and complicity.

Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters said at a news conference Monday that Corcoran would take her daughter to 41-year-old Shandell Willingham in exchange for drugs, then leave her with him and come back later.

Willingham has also been indicted on 26 counts, including rape, gross sexual imposition and human trafficking.

Corcoran’s attorney, James Bogen, says he’s gathering the facts of the case. Court records list no attorney for Willingham.

Deters says the girl is now staying with her father and stepmother.
