By: Father In Filthy Conditions, Fetus In Fridge Case Headed To Prison

The father of most of the seven children removed from a filthy Texas home where dirty diapers were stacked in closets has pleaded guilty to multiple charges.

Anthony Moya accepted a plea agreement Wednesday, pleading guilty to child injury and endangerment charges. He was sentenced to eight years.

Conditions in the home in 2007 also included trash covering most of the floors and roach and rodent infestations.

Earlier this month, a jury convicted Moya's common-law wife, Gloria Ramirez. She was sentenced to 10 years.

Police went to the couple's home after Moya asked a funeral home a casket for a stillborn infant. The fetus had been placed in a baby wipe box and stored in a refrigerator.



Previous Story:

A mother of nine who was arrested after authorities found a dead fetus stored in the refrigerator of her trash-strewn home in Lubbock, Texas, has been convicted of child injury and child endangerment.

Jurors deliberated just 32 minutes before finding Gloria Ramirez guilty on Thursday.

When police arrived at the 28-year-old's home in 2007 they found rodents, roaches, dirty diapers stacked in closets, moldy food and trash covering most floors.

Ramirez's oldest child testified Wednesday that her mother threatened her life and her siblings' lives if they told anyone about the filthy conditions.

Ramirez's husband also faces charges and is to go on trial this month.
