LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - The father of most of the seven children removed from a filthy Lubbock home where stacks of dirty diaper filled closets has pleaded guilty to child injury and endangerment charges.
Anthony Moya (MOY'-ah) accepted a plea agreement Wednesday and
was sentenced to eight years in prison on each of two injury to a child charges and two years on each of six child endangerment. Each
sentence will be served concurrently.
Earlier this month, a jury sentenced Moya's common-law wife, Gloria Ramirez, to 10 years in prison in the case.
Police came to the couple's home in 2007 after Moya called a funeral home about a casket for a stillborn infant. The fetus had been placed in a baby wipe box and in a refrigerator.
