Wife came home from work early 'to find husband raping girl, 14, in their bed'

A wife came home early from work to find her husband raping a 14 year-old girl in their bed, newly-filed charges claim. Paul Beecher Russell, 51, was indicted by a grand jury in Wichita Falls, Texas, last week over the alleged child abuse, which is said to have happened in May.

He asked his unidentified spouse to stop by the grocery store on her way home from work that evening, only for her to decide not to do so, it is alleged. On coming home, the wife walked inside and noticed she and Russell’s bedroom door was shut, even though the couple always left it open.

The woman then tried to open the door, only to find it locked. Russell reportedly called out ‘Just a minute, I’m using the restroom,’ from behind the door, prompting the woman to open it with her own key.

The Times Record News reported that she then walked in to find Russell naked and on top of a 14 year-old girl, who was not wearing pants or underwear. Russell is said to have been positioned on his knees.

His horrified wife screamed and yanked the child away from him, before fleeing the scene and calling the police. The child’s relationship to Russell has not been disclosed to protect her privacy. Russell is then said to have fled the scene in his white 1991 Chevy Camaro.

Police spotted the car and gave chase for 30 minutes. Russell’s car was brought to a halt by an officer using a ‘pit maneuver’ – a sudden sideways turn which forces another driver to stop.

Grand jurors have now returned five sealed indictments on Russell – two counts of child indecency over the May incident, and related to two further assaults said to have taken place in January this year and November last year.

Russell is also charged with evading arrest over the police chase. He is being held in Wichita County Jail ahead of his next court appearance. If convicted on all counts, he faces up to 51 years behind bars.
