A 26-year-old woman in China has been charged to court for luring her father to bed and having sex with him because she didn’t like the woman he was engaged to. The 58-year-old man had sexual intercourse with the daughter on two occasions in 2009.

A psychological report revealed that the daughter, who has not been identified, was “deprived of her mother’s love” and the sexual encounters stemmed from “misplaced love, infatuation and devotion to her father”.

The district court in Hong Kong heard that the pair’s intimate relationship began when the daughter was 19-years-old, the South China Morning Post reports. The young woman’s horrified brother, then in secondary school, found out about the intercourse and told the police, the court heard. He did not realize that it was consensual.
