CINCINNATI (AP) — An Ohio woman blamed diet supplements after police accused her of filming herself sexually abusing her young daughter and emailing the videos to others, police records showed Monday.

The 32-year-old was indicted Monday on multiple charges, including rape and pandering. If convicted, she faces life in prison.

She did not yet have an attorney.

The Associated Press is not identifying the woman to protect her daughter's identity.

The woman was arrested at her home in Springboro in southwestern Ohio on June 22 after her boyfriend found five videos of her engaged in graphic sexual acts with her daughter and called police, a police report released Monday said. The girl is under 5 but authorities wouldn't be more specific about her age.

When asked about the videos, the woman said she didn't remember shooting them because she had taken a lot of diet pills that rendered her unconscious, according to the report.

Police who watched the videos say that the woman was conscious and active in the videos, and filmed at least one of them herself.

"She stated that she was sick to her stomach when she saw the videos and would never hurt (her daughter)," according to the report, written by Springboro police Officer Thomas Faulkner.
