Patricia Ann Clayton, 43, and Misty Velvet Dawn Spann, 25, of Duncan, Oklahoma are wife and wife. Same sex marriage has been legal in the west south central state since 2014, so…no biggie, right?
Well, how about this: Patricia and Misty are mother and daughter!
When she was arrested last fall, Patricia told the cops she had lost custody of her three children when they were young, but reconnected with them when they were older. So, it was like meeting them for the first time. When she and Misty were reunited, Patricia said in her arrest affidavit, the two “hit it off.” Wow. Just…wow.
The couple came under the microscope when they tried to adopt a child together. Mom told police she didn’t think she was breaking any laws by marrying her daughter because her name is no longer listed on Misty’s birth certificate, due to her having lost custody. Say what? She’s still blood, isn’t she? In any case, Patricia is ID’ed as Patricia Ann Clayton on their March 2016 marriage license application. So, that’s how the marriage was allowed to slip through the cracks.
Now get this: Patricia has married one of her kids before!
In 2008 she walked down the aisle with her son Jody Calvin Spann, 27, in what she says was an attempt to keep him from being deployed to active duty in the military. Jody had the marriage annulled in 2010 on the grounds of incest. He claimed he didn’t know Patricia was his mom! Wait. What?
The one child of hers Patricia hasn’t married, Cody Spann, 25, told People magazine that Patricia came back into his and his sibling’s lives claiming to be a friend rather than their biological mother. That’s messed up.
Cody said he, Patricia and Jody spent some time together in Texas and before long, Patricia and Jody became close. The two married, but when the family returned to Oklahoma, everyone learned the truth: that they were related.
“We got told we actually had a real mom, so we wanted to know what she was about, the first thing she showed us she was about was trying to get in my brother’s pants,” Cody said.
Cody contends his mother is a “predator” who “forced” his brother and sister to marry her – and threatened to kill them if they didn’t do it. “I think she’s just a sick, twisted individual that has something messed up in her head. Why would you want to be with one of your own kids? Patricia’s a very disgusting and horrible person.”
Cody went on to tell PEOPLE that Jody was allegedly “manipulated, forced and threatened” after he learned the truth. He said that after that marriage was annulled, Patricia went after Misty, threatening her with poisoning if Misty refused. “My sister was manipulated and scared into this. Was she an adult? Yes, she was. But my sister was scared,” Cody said.
Patricia also tried to marry Cody, but he told her off. “She only tried it once and I told her to get lost, I would never be with my biological mom. That is disgusting. I came from that woman,” he told K-FOR news.
Misty pleaded guilty this week to illegally marrying her mother and was sentenced in Stephens County District Court. District Judge Ken Graham gave her a deferred sentence of 10 years, at least two of which must be under the supervision of the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.
Patricia is expected to appear in court in January 2018 on similar charges.
What a world, huh?
