(NBC DFW) A 14-year-old girl who was impregnated by a relative was beaten by four family members to induce an abortion, Dallas police say.

The family attempted to cover up the crime by burning the eight-month old stillborn baby on a charcoal grill at a home in Pleasant Grove in Dallas, according to police.

Police said the incident occurred two years ago, but the hours-long attack was reported to police only last month.

Cedric Jones, Sharon Jones, Cecila McDonald, and Lonnell McDonald are each held on $150,000 bonds and are accused of engaging in an organized criminal activity. All four are in custody in the Dallas County Jail.

Two days later, the remains were disposed of in a plastic bag at an unknown location.
