Investigators told News 4 that 43-year-old Patricia Spann lost custody of Misty, 26, and two other children when they were young.
But in 2014, mother and daughter reunited and Misty said the pair hit it off and even discussed adopting a child together.
Patricia Spann said she didn't think they violated any laws because her name was no longer on Misty Spann's birth certificate. According to the Department of Human Services, Patricia never reported that she had married her biological son in Comanche County, Okla.in 2008. That marriage was annulled in 2010 after the son described it as incestuous.
The marriage was annulled October 12 after Misty filed for an annulment "by reason of illegality and fraud", She said her mother told her she had received legal advice indicating that their marriage was legal because Patricia's name was no longer on Misty's birth certificate. The petition says Patricia Spann told her daughter that she had consulted with three lawyers who each advised her that there would be no problems with their marriage. "Obviously, some of the things that I took into consideration was her age and her lack of any criminal history and that is how we came to that plea agreement". "Why would you want to be with one of your own kids?" The two eventually married, but when the family returned to Oklahoma, everyone learned the truth: that they were related. "My brother ... said that he wanted to get away from her - that was not what he wanted. Yes, she was. But my sister was scared", Cody said.
