According to The Las Cruces Sun-News, officials were checking on the welfare of this developmentally disabled child when they came upon the horrific scene, as the woman and her boyfriend were reportedly at a movie when they left her alone in a cage the size of a crib.

Cindy Patriarchias (who is charged with negligently causing child abuse) and Edmond Gonzales (who is charged with negligently permitting child abuse) remain in custody.

A police spokesperson says the couple was actually in the process of trying to adopt the girl when they were arrested.

Fortunately, she did not appear to suffer any injuries as a result of this lock-up.
