LAWRENCEBURG, Kentucky — The mother of a 3-year-old girl has pleaded guilty to tying her up for hours at a time.

The Lexington Herald-Leader ( reports 31-year-old Rebecca Medley entered the plea in Anderson County Circuit Court on Monday, which is when her trial was to begin on a first-degree criminal abuse charge.

The child's grandmother, 66-year-old Carolyn Case, had already pleaded guilty to an amended second-degree criminal abuse charge and had agreed to testify against Medley and the girl's stepfather, 55-year-old Herbert C. Medley, whose trial date will be reset.

The three were arrested in 2012. Police say the girl was tied to her bed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Case told police the child was "getting into things" and was also tied up for naps and discipline.
