Warrant: California women accused of starving daughter said girl went on hunger strikes

Sheriff's officials in California say two women accused of chaining up their 8-year-old daughter to prevent her from getting food have claimed the girl weighed only 40 pounds because she went on hunger strikes.

Monterey County authorities included the statements in a search warrant filed in the case against Eraca Dawn Craig and Christian Jessica Deanda.

The Salinas Californian (http://bit.ly/1dAA5J0) reported Friday that Craig told a deputy the girl would also eat until she threw up.

Craig and Deanda are charged with felony false imprisonment and felony child endangerment.

They are also facing misdemeanor child endangerment charges in connection with the treatment of two boys, ages 5 and 3. A judge raised bail to $500,000 for each of the women on Friday.

Deanda's attorney, Jeremy Dzubay, has said there was a much wider story to tell.
