Oklahoma mother sentenced to 22 years in prison for keeping 4-year-old son in dog cage

An Oklahoma woman has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for locking her 4-year-old son in a dog cage.

A district judge in Claremore handed down the punishment Thursday to the 34-year-old Chelsea woman. She pleaded guilty in May to child abuse by injury and child neglect.

Court documents say the boy was held in the cage last year for an estimated 14 hours each day.

Her co-defendant and common-law husband was sentenced last month to 27 years in prison for child abuse and sexually abusing another child.

The man told authorities that they kept the boy in the cage for discipline and protection.

The Associated Press typically does not name victims of child abuse and is withholding the adults' names to avoid identifying the child.
