LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) – January 29, 2013 – A New Mexico woman and her boyfriend

locked up an 8-year-old girl with developmental disabilities in a wooden cage, then left

her alone while they headed out to watch a movie, police said Tuesday.

Cindy Patriarchias and Edmond Gonzales took her three children to an elementary

school to watch the movie on Friday, a police report said. Patriarchias’ estranged hus-

band called police when he arrived at the school and learned that the 8-year-old girl

was unattended at the mobile home.

Police waited for an hour for Patriarchias and Gonzales to return before they could

enter. Officers discovered a large homemade wooden cage in the corner of a bedroom

with the girl inside. The cage had two latches on the door, a baby crib’s mattress inside

and was about 2 ½ feet wide and 4 feet inches tall, police said in a statement.  The girl

didn’t appear to have any physical injuries, police said. She was placed under the care

of New Mexico’s child-protection agency.  A police spokesman said Patriarchias had

been trying to adopt the girl but hadn’t been able to reach the girl’s birth mother to get

her consent. The girl suffers from microcephaly – a condition that gives people an ab-

normally small head.  Patriarchias, 33, has been charged with negligently causing child

abuse. Gonzales, 37, was charged with negligently permitting child abuse. Court records

indicated that they appeared in court Monday but didn’t enter pleas.

Patriarchias and Gonzales were being held $25,000 cash-only bonds. It was unclear if

they had hired attorneys.
