MANASSAS, Va. (AP) — A northern Virginia woman is facing sentencing for using drywall to barricade her three young daughters into a room.

Christina Moore, of Bristow, is scheduled to be sentenced Thursday in Prince William County. She pleaded guilty last fall to child abuse and neglect.

The three girls, including an 18-month-old, were found last March left alone in a filthy room barricaded with drywall. The oldest girl used mattresses to climb over the drywall and got a neighbor to help her sisters. A neighbor found Moore and 35-year-old John Robey passed out, and defense lawyers said they were struggling at the time with a severe drug addiction.

Robey was sentenced in January to three years of probation and ordered to complete an intensive outpatient drug program.
