183 women, children removed from Mormon ranch

HOUSTON: Texas officials investigating a child abuse case said 183 children and women had been removed from a ranch that is home to a breakaway Mormon sect linked to jailed polygamist leader Warren Jeffs.

Texas authorities descended on the ranch after allegations that a 50-year-old man there had married and fathered a child with an under-age girl.
