MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two men have been indicted by a Shelby County Grand Jury after being accused of raping a nine-month-old child and recording it.

Hayes was indicted on aggravated rape of a child and especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor. Ice was indicted on aggravated rape of a child/ criminal responsibility for conduct of another and especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor.
