Greensburg police have charged a man and a woman in the sexual assault of a five-year-old boy. The boy’s mother who was charged Tuesday, allegedly posted a video of the rape online.

On Thursday, police arrested the mother’s ex-boyfriend, Charles Hunter, 32, of Greensburg and his current girlfriend, Amanda Lynn Smith, 29, of Hempfield, in connection with the rape that investigators allege in a court document took place between Aug. 1-14.

The boy’s mother, Corby Kinzey, 24, of Greensburg, told police that Hunter asked her numerous times to record a video of her performing sex acts on the boy.

Kinzey initially told police an unknown male wearing a mask and holding a gun to her head forced her to make the video, but admitted she was lying after detectives told her they didn’t believe her, according to court documents.

Police alleged in a criminal complaint that text messages between Kinzey and Hunter prove the pair conspired to make the video. Kinzey said she worried about, “going to jail” in an Aug. 10 message. Hunter responded by telling “her to calm down,” adding, “Remember you agreed to this,” the complaint alleges.

Police have charged Smith with a single count of disseminating a video of a sex act on a child.  Smith shared the video with her mother, who then immediately notified police.

Smith is being held in the Westmoreland County Jail after she was unable to post a $100,000 bond and faces an Aug. 30 preliminary hearing.

Hunter is charged with rape, intercourse with a child and other offenses related to the incident and is being held in the Westmoreland County Jail pending a preliminary hearing on Aug. 30.

Woman charged with raping 5-year-old boy, then posts video online

By Amanda Klein | August 15, 2018

Police have charged a Greensburg woman with sexually assaulting a 5-year-old boy and then posting a video of the act on social media.

According to a criminal complaint, Corby Jo Kinzey, 24, posted a video online last month that shows her having sex with the five-year-old, which was seen by the mother of one of Kinzey’s former boyfriends.

The filing alleges that the mother reported the matter to police on Tuesday, when she gave them a copy of the video after becoming concerned about the child’s welfare.

Police according to court documents, believe that Kinzey made the video earlier this month.

After obtaining a search warrant on Tuesday, police arrested Kinzey at her apartment around 10:00 p.m.  While she was being transported to the police station Kinzey said she was under arrest because of the video.  “It’s about the video,” Kinzey is alleged to have said.

Under questioning, Kinzey claimed a male in his 20s that was wearing a mask held a gun to her head made her have sex with the child, the complaint alleges.  Kinzey also told police the man threatened to kill her if she notified police.

The complaint said after a detective told her that he didn’t believe her account of what occurred, she started crying and eventually admitted to the sexual assault.

Kinzey was denied bail and is charged with a host of sex-related crimes including rape, rape of a child, sexual assault, endangering the welfare of minors and other offenses.

The child has temporarily been placed in the custody of a family member and Kinzey’s preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 23.
