An Oklahoma City mother pleads guilty to the abuse and neglect of her young daughter.

A judge sentence Aesusena Gonzalez to 20 years on Tuesday. Police said they found Gonzalez's malnourished 5-year-old daughter back in July. The little girl was starved and forced to live in a closet. She weighed only 19 pounds when police found her.

The little girl's grandmother Maria Gonnzales and another man who lived in the house, Sergio Almeida, still face charges of enabling child neglect.

Aesusena Gonzalez has agreed to testify to what happened. The little girl and five other kids who were in the house were taken into DHS custody.
