Laketha Moore, shown in a previous court appearance, faces 31 counts of child neglect.
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A preliminary hearing for a North Las Vegas mom accused of tying her 4-year-old daughter to a bed and leaving her alone for hours was pushed back to August.
During Laketha Moore's appearance in North Las Vegas Justice Court on Thursday, a judge decided to push back the proceedings in light of as new motion in the case.
Moore was charged on 31 counts of child neglect for 31 days she admits to leaving her 4-year-old daughter home alone.
According to an arrest report, Moore admitted to tying up her child because she's a single mother and didn't have a babysitter. She also told officers her daughter would ransack the house and was a picky eater. The report reveals a long list of abuses.
A day before Moore's arrest March 20, an apartment complex employee went inside the unit because Moore was behind on her rent. The employee then noticed the doors tied together. It didn't sit well with her so she came back the next day and then she found the girl, according to a report.
The child was treated for her injuries and released to Child Protective Services.
She was placed into custody at Clark County Detention Center in lieu of $620,000 bail.
