Commenting they said, "The Baker's have been sentenced to prison for a catalogue of callous, obscene and heinous crimes. They carried them out against a vulnerable women in unthinkable living conditions.

Yesterday a sentence was handed down for the calculated way in which they carried out their depraved acts over a sustained period of time. This is due to the bravery of those who came forward to report the crimes and the PSNI who investigated the crimes committed.

This story has rocked the community of Craigavon and further afield. No such activity should be part of modern day society.

It is now of paramount importance that the victims receive proper support in the future, as they try to rebuild their lives after such despicable, inhumane treatment and sustained sexual, physical and emotional abuse."
