Missouri Couple Accused Of Plotting Infant's Rape: Inside The Bizarre Public Facebook Posts

Earlier this week, we wrote about one of the most horrific and unbelievable criminal allegations we've heard in a long time: Jessica Lynn Howell, a 25-year-old O'Fallon mother, is accused of knowingly letting her boyfriend sexually assault her four-month-old baby daughter -- and encouraging it. Jordan Lafayette Prince, a 25-year-old St. Charles man, rape, strangled and killed the infant Ashlynn Lilith Peters, officials say. Both are now behind bars facing second-degree murder charges.

Investigators say they have uncovered text messages relating to the December assault that show the mother advocating the rape.

Howell and Prince both have public Facebook profiles that frequently mention Ashlynn before and after her death and also include a fair amount of bizarre photos and comments that are, at the very least, unsettling in the context of the gruesome allegations. Prince -- whose last post before he went to jail read, "This is for you baby girl.....daddy misses you....daddy loves you" -- has some especially troubling posts.

It could be a while before the public learns the full extent of the information that investigators have uncovered implicating Howell in the death of her own daughter.

She may not go to trial until 2014, a prosecuting attorney told Daily RFT earlier this week. You can read the full charging document in our previous coverage.

We've reached out to attorneys listed for Prince and will update if we hear back. Since her recent arrest, Howell does not yet have an attorney listed in online court records.

In the meantime, below are photos of the two and a selection of their public Facebook postings.

This is NOT a representation of a juggalo or a lette! I am a lette, have all my teeth, my husband, children, own our home and am in the process of starting our own company! I look at my own 4mo, and want to vomit over what this pos did to that beatiful princess. My son had to have multiple sticks for jaundice and it broke my heart to see the hurt and pain. For this incubator and sperm donor to call themselves parents ... turns my stomach. Her ONE job was to love and protect her child. I pray that theu are both stuck in male gen pop and subjected to the horrors that Ashlynn endured. RIP sweet angel where you can fly free from fear and pain.

Death is way too good for these unbelievable monsters. They should get life in prison where they can be used "as entertainment" for  other perverts to repeatedly rape, molest, abuse & torture each of them  for two hours daily for the rest of their miserable lives.  They need to REALLY feel that baby's pain not once BUT EACH DAY for as long as they live.  Thank God that dear sweet baby did not have to go through life with the most disgusting sickos ever.

Skin them and give them a microwave pillow like in Ordinary Law Obiding Citizen.

I don't understand how members of our species are capable of such evil. This is as warped as it gets. They created life, abused it, and took it away. They sealed their fates to say the least. They'll be the victims this time around, and their pain needs to be relentless. They're entitled to the death penalty as far as I'm concerned. After a long stay in solitary confinement, I want them slowly skinned alive. Something really macabre, but that's unlikely. The chair or lethal injection it is.

Why do these kind of people get to have the blessing of children when all they intend to do is hurt them? They should have their genitals ripped off or mutilated.

I shed tears for this little angel Ashlynn. May you rest in peace little baby. We have people that want and should prolly deserve children to love and cherish, but can't have children and yet these demons get a gift and destroy her before she could even know what facial expression are.  I pray that I don't come across demons like these only he knows up there of what I want to do to these demons. I apologize if this offends some of you good hearted people, as for you other demons that seem to want to destroy these little angels the man blessed us with I can't say what I would really enjoy doing to you for a very long time and being very painful.

Or another one from Jordan's FB -4/19/2011: "you people think that you are so hight and mighty..... you think you are so rightous... your hand is guided by satan himself...... i hope one day you feel the pain you have caused others...."

HOPE THIS P.O.S. "feels the pain he has caused others"!!!!

Reading back on ALL of their past posts is just disgusting. Here's one from 3/26/2012  "I hate when everything seems so perfect then it shatters in a blink of an eye.....and your just standing there all bloody and depressed wondering what you did so wrong to deserve this fate"  and another from 3/13/2012   "Men are born between a woman's legs and spend the rest of their lives trying to get back between them.WHY? Because there is no place like home". Both from Jordan's FB.  

I rarely (if ever)  wish harm on others- These people I ABSOLUTELY DO! These two are the lowest of low. The entire story is just sickening. I feel so much empathy for baby Ashlynn.

Why keep showing photo`s of this loser. Just making him more famous. Just giving him a bigger power trip probably hard telling what this sick ass guy might be thinking. They should get someone in the same cell with him that is in for life and give the guy some money and let him fix this guy real nice for what he did.

RFT is simply reporting news, as much as this story turns my stomache, it is news. Stop shooting the messenger people. Be angry with the scumbags who did this, not the people reporting on it.

If they are found guilty, there is no punishment suitable for this crime. Maybe severe disfigurement and forced to live out the rest if their natural lives in anguish and ridicule. All I can think about everytime I hear of this story is "what in thee fuck?!?!"

Man, fuck both him and her.  Death is too good for people like that.  This is exactly why torture should be legalized as a legitimate punishment in this country.

I don't even need to read this. I don't care about the "drive" or the "want" or what lead up to it. Just kill them.

@Casey McBroom I couldn't agree more! The only problem with that is he has no soul so 

there 's not a lot you can do to hurt him.

@Jen Pingel -

Sadly he's probably being held in some sort of "protective custody"  so he won't have to suffer the same awful demise. I was thinking the same thing though. He absolutely deserves anything awful that can come his way.
