Madison woman gets 5 years prison for role in "house of terror"

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A woman has been sentenced in a starvation and reckless endangerment case.

43-year-old Melinda Drabek-Chritton will serve 5 years for locking up their teenage stepdaughter in a basement and denying her food.

Prosecutors called the family home a “house of terror”.

Court records show the teen, who is now 16, dropped to 68 pounds while going through the ordeal.

The victim’s father, Chad Chritton, was convicted of child neglect in March and faces other charges in November.

The teen’s step brother is also facing charges, including sexual assault – his trial is in February.
