Missing Girl Found, as Questions About Abuse Surface

Gault's common law wife, Ann Murphy, 40, of the same address, was charged with conspiracy to commit second-degree reckless endangerment, conspiracy to commit second-degree custodial interference and risk of injury to a minor. She was held on $750,000 bond.

Cray was charged with reckless endangerment, conspiracy to commit custodial interference, risk of injury to a minor and conspiracy to commit unlawful restraint. She was being held on $500,000 bond.

Additional charges may follow, according to authorities, possibly involving additional young women who may have had relations with Gault. The Hartford Courant reported that Gault had relationships with at least two other underage women who worked for him in 1998 and 1999. The FBI is working with local authorities on the case.

A 16-year-old boy, indentfied as Murphy's son in court documents, was also found at the house. His case was referred to that state's Department of Children and Families, the same agency that will determine the girl's fate.
