Baker ‘paid’ his victim in Quality Street sweets for having depraved sex with him and others, it is claimed

This is the tiny room where monster Keith Baker kept a woman with severe learning difficulties as his sex slave for years.

It has since been re-decorated, but had a bare floor and no light during her imprisonment.

Baker, 61, a one-time care worker, ‘paid’ his victim Quality Street sweets for having depraved sex with him and others.

He filmed dozens of unknown men raping her at the sex den prison in Northern Ireland, then ‘rewarded’ her with boxes of chocolates and sweets if she had been "good".

"She told police she did what Baker told her because she was terrified of him but also because he gave her sweets," said a source.

"She even said her favourite was the purple one from the Quality Street box and she would get that if she had been particularly good.

"Medical tests showed she only had one ‘sound’ tooth and that is why."

Baker and his wife Caroline, 54, prevented her from ever leaving her small room by removing the handle on the inside of the door.

It is understood Baker met his victim in Britain and either invited or persuaded her to come to Northern Ireland.

When her husband reported her missing in 2004, it seemed she had vanished without trace.

And she lacked the mental capacity to escape.

The Bakers are due to be sentenced on Tuesday for a catalogue of appalling sexual abuse committed at their specially adapted home.

Baker’s wife Caroline was working as a care worker at a home in Northern Ireland that specialises in mental health residents right up until she was arrested.

The PSNI is understood to have conducted a thorough investigation into whether she may have abused anyone at the home.

The chilling details of what really went on behind closed doors are still to come out.

Sex-mad Baker was a member of social dating site Badoo where he tried to meet women to satisfy his cravings.

He used the soft and cuddly profile name ‘Keiffy Bear’ to lure women into his trap.

Throughout police questioning Baker denied the allegations and claimed all the sex was consensual.

Witnesses told police there was always strange men coming and going from the house and after they seized tapes of unidentified men being filmed having sex with the victim, detectives suspected Baker was pimping her out on the internet.

He locked his mentally disabled victim away for years in a tiny room – not allowing her to leave or even see a dentist or doctor.

The room has been decorated since the victim was released from slavery.

When she was there the floor was bare and the light didn’t work.

When police finally rescued her, she weighed just six stone and her teeth had rotted so badly from all the sweets and lack of dental care she only had one sound tooth.

The sex slave, who’s believed to be in her 40s, was only rescued after another woman who, like her, suffered from learning difficulties, raised the alarm when she told a disability support worker that there was another woman living at the house.

The whistleblower, known in court as Miss X, was assessed as suffering chronic post-traumatic stress and said she suffered 20 years of abuse after starting a second family with Baker.

However, the PPS had decided there was not enough evidence to prosecute Keith Baker for those allegations.

Both Miss X and Caroline Baker each had four children with Baker and the pad was divided into two sections – one for the women and one for the men.

The victim lived in the squalid half and was allowed to shower only once a week, her ‘toilet’ was overflowing with human waste.

Keith and Caroline pleaded guilty to a string of horrific sex offences against the single woman who had been living at the property for nearly a decade.

They admitted two charges of engaging in sexual activity with a mentally disabled person and one of enticing her into sexual activity knowing she was unlikely to refuse.

Keith Baker also confessed to six counts of rape of the same woman and a final count of indecently assaulting her.

His wife pleaded guilty to three offences of aiding and abetting, counselling and procuring" her husband to rape their victim and a single count of indecent assault.

Baker started his life as a care worker and ended up owning a hotel along with his brother.

He groomed his victim in England and, concerned he would be caught by the authorities, decided to take her somewhere ‘safe’.

"Baker knew she had been reported missing and so he wanted to get her somewhere ‘safe’," said a source.

At a previous hearing the victim was described in court as having severe learning difficulties and in very poor health.

Caroline Baker has been described as being "under the spell" of her domineering husband and while he has been in prison on remand, she was granted bail.
