BRIDGEPORT - Two Bridgeport residents are facing charges for alleged child sex trafficking.

Federal prosecutors say 26-year-old Neshaya Dozier and 32-year-old Darryl Morris were arrested this month following a long investigation by the FBI and several local police departments.

Authorities say for about a year and a half, the couple forced a child to perform sex acts for money and threatened the victim with violence.

Investigators say both suspects face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
