Sharon Glass could spend the rest of her life in prison.

In January, a jury convicted her of child abuse, neglect and false imprisonment after seeing the pictures of the starved 13-year-old. The boy only weighed 40 pounds when he was rescued.

Investigators said the pair would lock the boy in a closet or zip-tie him to a bed for days.

She blamed the abuse on the boy's father, Michael Marshall, saying she was afraid of retribution from her live-in-boyfriend.

Marshall pleaded no contest to eight charges of child abuse, torture, and false imprisonment last month.
