Palm Beach Gardens girl released from "torture chamber"

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - A Palm Beach Gardens mother is facing child abuse charges after her 14-year-old daughter told police she had been locked in a room for a month and a half -- losing 20 pounds.

The girl told authorities her mother, Sheila Cook, would lock her and her siblings in the room as punishment and even called it a "torture chamber".

Cook was released from the Palm Beach County Jail on bond. Her boyfriend remains behind bars.
