NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nevada – A single mother made an initial court appearance after being accused of locking her 4-year-old daughter in an apartment bedroom for up to 12 hours a day tethere to a bedpost and left with a plastic tote bin to use as a toilet.
Laketha Charis Moore, 36, kept her eyes downcast and said nothing as she stood in shackles and an orange jail jumpsuit before North Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Pro-Tem Eugene Martin.
The girl was left with little to eat or drink in a room that reeked of human waste.
The police report said officers found no water or food in the bedroom.
Officers noted finding blood on a blue terrycloth bathrobe tie anchored to the bed, and several inches of urine and feces in the blue plastic tote bin with a purple lid. Full Article
