Just checked for updates. This is getting worst than expected.
I was wondering why LE stated assault with "a deadly weapon" I guess now I know why.
Victim is 26 year old niece old Arms. Apparently NOT the first victim either.
I wouldn't be surprised if homicide charges come out of this.
I sure hope those kids are given the counseling they surely need. (Read below)
According to Burnet police, a two-month investigation revealed that a 26-year-old woman was held against her will at her aunt's home at 715 North Pierce in Burnet and repeatedly assaulted for up to a year. Police have not released the woman's name.
Detectives first came across the victim in January when her sister and Simon's wife, 29-year-old Rebecca Schaller, died on the couch.
Arrest warrant affidavits say that Schaller had an inch-deep stab wound under her left breast. Two-thirds of her face had been burned. She had broken ribs in various stages of healing. Both of her ear lobes had been sliced. The document goes on to say that of the eight adults and six children in the house when Schaller died, none of them seemed to care and went about their business of doing chores.
When detectives were investigating Schaller’s death, they took a closer look at her sister, who had two black eyes and told detectives that she was often tied to a hospital bed and beaten repeatedly with a wooden paddle wrapped in black tape and a leather belt.
Burnet Police say that Charlotte Arms took her nieces in because they had nowhere else to go after aging out of Child Protective Services.

Snipped from above link and post:
"...of the eight adults and six children in the house when Schaller died..."
Does not actually say 14 people lived in house pix'ed, but seems on the smallish side for that many people, imo.
Cozy to say the least.
Hoping for healing and justice for all involved.

Burnet Police: Mother severely beaten, locked inside home for a year
The woman, in her early 20s, was not allowed to leave the home at 715 North Pierce and was beaten on several occasions for trying to leave, authorities said.
She is now in a shelter with her two kids, who are both under the age of six.
Glad she is safe. This is such a sickening story. Those poor kids.Look twice - Save a Life! Motorcycles are everywhere!

I bet once the ME rules Rebecca Shaller death a homicide, murder charges will be filed against all three.
Also from the article it says that a neighbor across the street had no idea, so I guess that answered my question up thread.
She is one scary looking person with whatever she has going on with her eyes/face piercings. (CLick here for larger image if you dare)

During one incident, the victim claimed one of the suspects tied her to a table in June 2013, placed a rag in her mouth and put a towel over her head and poured water over her face while questioning her about her actions, according to the affidavit. The woman told investigators she thought she was going to drown.
According to the affidavit, the victim said the man called this “water boarding.”

Lots of new information in this article. I do think they will be charges with murder. At least that's what it sounds like to me.Look twice - Save a Life! Motorcycles are everywhere!
