SACRAMENTO (KOVR) - A five-year-old girl discovered dead in a Sacramento storage unit last Tuesday may have been kept in a dog cage in a Reno apartment before she died.

A Reno television station obtained an affidavit saying police found an animal crate inside the couple’s apartment bathroom... with handcuffs attached and food nearby, but no evidence of a pet.

After reportedly spending a week trying to figure out a way to dispose of the body, the father allegedly drove it to a Sacramento storage facility.

The girl's stepmom is in jail in Nevada facing child abuse charges.

The father is also facing charges.
