OKLAHOMA CITY -- An Oklahoma City mother and her boyfriend accused of unspeakable child abuse go before a judge Monday.

Asusena Gonzales is accused of neglecting her 5-year-old daughter to the point the little girl weighed only 19 pounds. Her boyfriend, Sergio Almeida, is accused of allowing it to happen.

The little girl is now in protective state custody, as are her other siblings. Now Gonzales, Almeida and the girls grandmother, Maria Gonzales are in custody, charged with felony abuse and neglect.

Asusena Gonzales kept her arms crossed and kept her eyes down through most of her video arraignment.

This is not her first time before a judge for reported child abuse. She was also charged with it in 2009.

Almeida is charged with enabling the neglect. Asusena's daughter was found living in a closet with only a cup to use for the bathroom. Police report you could see the little girl's bones through her skin she was so malnourished. But the other children were said to be fine and healthy.

The judge denied bond for both Asusena and Sergio. Both will be back in court on August 11.
