A Millwood couple on Wednesday pleaded not guilty to numerous charges related to the alleged sexual abuse of a 2-year-old.

Eva McHenry, 40, of Millwood, was arrested on May 29 for sodomy, first degree - incapable of consent - physically helpless; promoting a minor under 16 in sex performance; and distribution of matter portraying sexual performance of a minor in relation to incidents that allegedly occurred on Feb. 2.

Her husband, Donnie McHenry, 48, of Millwood, was arrested two days later on Friday, May 31 for the charges of sodomy, first degree - incapable of consent - physically helpless (complicity); possess/view matter portraying sexual performance by minor; and promoting a minor (under 16) in sex performance in relation to the same alleged child sexual abuse and exploitation.

According to his arrest warrant, Donnie McHenry allegedly received a video of an act of sodomy committed by Eva McHenry on a 2-year-old female.

The warrant also states that both McHenrys were interviewed by Kentucky State Police and had conflicting stories.

Eva McHenry reportedly told police that her husband talked her through the act, encouraging her to do it and telling her where to place the recording device, while Donnie McHenry said that he received the video and only kept it on his device to use as evidence against his wife.

Both Donnie and Eva McHenry are being held on $10,000 bonds at the Grayson County Detention Center.

Preliminary hearings will be held for the couple on Thursday at 1 p.m.
