MC Mom accused of keeping kids in unsanitary room pleads guilty

Decorative Scales Of Justice In The Courtroom

Mason City, Iowa (AP) – A Mason City mom accused of making her kids sleep in a feces-covered room has pleaded guilty.

Online court records say 26-year-old Alexis Martinez filed a written plea Wednesday to one count of felony neglect of a dependent person. She’d been charged with three counts. The records don’t list a sentencing date.

Court documents say Martinez forced her children, ages 2, 4 and 6, in late August to sleep for a week in a room that had feces on the walls and floor.
