ZEPHYRHILLS — A husband and wife were taken into custody after a video surfaced showing the wife, while naked, placing a 1-month-old boy upon her in an inappropriate way.

On Saturday, an unidentified person received the video over Facebook Messenger. It showed an unclothed Katherine Grace Rice, 31, of Zephyrhills and an infant boy, Pasco sheriff's officials said. The person notified deputies, who later visited Rice's house. There, they met Rice's husband, Derick John Rice, 30, who identified the woman in the video as his wife. Deputies arrested her that night.

Derick Rice gave deputies permission to search his cell phone, sheriff's officials said. They found the video, which he said his wife texted to him in April or May. Rice had sent it to three people, according to detectives. Deputies arrested him Monday.

Katherine Rice was arrested on a charge of sexual battery of a victim under 12 and sexual performance of a child. She was released from the Land O'Lakes Detention Center on Monday after posting $60,000 bail.

Derick Rice was arrested on a charge of sexual performance of a child and transmission of pornography by an electronic device. He was being held in lieu of $10,000 bail.
