An Ohio woman accused of helping her ex-boyfriend create child pornography with a then-3-year-old girl as the subject was arrested and extradited to Pennsylvania, according to a news release from Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro. 

Kayla Parker, 26, was charged with multiple counts of four separate felonies: Six of sexual abuse of children, two of sexual exploitation of children, two of indecent assault and two of endangering the welfare of a child.

"The crimes that this mother is accused of are absolutely appalling, and although she may have believed that she left her alleged crimes behind her when she moved to Ohio, we were pleased to assist Pennsylvania Attorney General Shapiro to find, interview, and arrest the defendant on these allegations," said Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine.

According to the news release, Parker lived with ex-boyfriend David Carbonaro in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, in 2014. Carbonaro was arrested in July, at which point investigators said they found "hundreds of images and several video files of a 3-year-old girl in various stages of undress." They subsequently identified both Parker and the victim.

Investigators said Parker, who had since moved to Ohio and claimed not to have any contact with Carbonaro, confessed to repeatedly undressing the girl and leaving her alone in a closed bedroom with Carbonaro when they lived together. 

She was extradited to a Pennsylvania jail, where her bail was set Monday at $100,000.
