Va. Couple Who Kept Girl in Cage to be Sentenced

June 10, 2013

GLOUCESTER, Va. (AP) - A sentencing hearing is set for a Gloucester County couple convicted of keeping their daughter in a makeshift cage.

Media outlets report that Brian and Shannon Gore each face up to life in prison. They're scheduled to be sentenced Monday afternoon in Gloucester County Circuit Court.

The Gores had pleaded guilty in March to felony child abuse charges. They also entered Alford pleas on aggravated malicious wounding charges. That means they didn't admit guilt but agreed that evidence was strong enough to convict them.

Police say the couple's daughter was 6 when sheriff's deputies discovered her in April 2011 while investigating a burglary report. The deputies reported that the girl was naked, malnourished and covered in her own feces.
