Mary Mast released on bail following court hearing on Tuesday – News / Talk KRMS 1150 AM, 97.5 FM and 103.3 FM
The mother of a 4-year-old girl found beaten to death at her home in Benton County has been released from jail.
Online records show Mary Mast posted half a million dollars bail Tuesday after appearing in court.
Mast will have to wear an ankle bracelet with a GPS tracking device and her lawyer says she will be living with her sister-in-law.
Mary’s attorney, John Rodgers, told KY 3 TV that she was also a victim in the case.
“Ethan made Mary take her clothes off, they cut her hair.” James, Ethan and Kourtney made him pee and drink it. They burned Mary with a lighter. They made Mary sleep in a chicken coop. Ethan and Kourtney, if that wasn’t enough, sexually assaulted Mary.
He says when the dust settles people will know the truth.
“When the general public understands the torture Mary endured, I think there will be even more sympathy for the defense and especially for Mary in this case.”
Mast’s husband, James, has been released from prison and also wears an ankle bracelet after posting a $ 500,000 bond.
Jessica Mast was found beaten to death in December and investigators said neighbors Ethan Mast and Kourtney Aumen beat Mary, Jessica and a 2-year-old because they said they all had demons inside of them.
Ethan Mast and Aumen face second degree murder charges in this case.
