Along with her, the parents also kept two of her siblings, a 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy, inside the house at Des Moines, in confinement.

Police only began investigating the family after the emergency services were called when Natalie was suffering cardiac arrest.

Nicole is charged with one count of first-degree murder, three counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of child endangerment resulting in death, three counts of child endangerment causing serious injury and three counts of neglect of a dependent person.

A magistrate placed a bond of $2.1 million for Nicole Marie Finn, who is also charged with first-degree murder and endangerment leading to death, and a bond of $1.5 million for the woman's husband.

Court reports, according to the Daily Mail UK, stated that Nicole Finn killed her daughter 'intentionally, wilfully, deliberately, with premeditation and malice aforethought'. Both adults are in jail with scheduled appearances in court, December 19.

According to WBLZ Natalie was a student at Walnut Creek Campus school but had not been enrolled this year.

Neighbours described Natalie as sweet and outgoing but said they did not interact much with the family.

One of the couple's neighbors declared to the police that approximately five months ago, the teen subjected to torture, knocked on her door asking for food and water.

"It was clear that aside from school, there was no social life outside of the home", Gordon said.

Even Nicole's classmates have declared that the teen would ask them for food during recess and that she was wearing the same clothes each day.

Gordon said Natalie spent a lot of time at her home, routinely stopping by to eat breakfast with her son. The couple have two more kids - another 15-year-old and a 22 year old who were not listed in the complaints. "We're hungry."' Gordon said she got in touch with the police after she heard that.

Prior to the teen's death, another neighbor, Tiana Curtis told of having reached out to The Iowa Department of Human Services.

Offered neighbor, Leah Mireles viawhotv: 'You never would think in a million years that you would live next to someone who was capable of doing something like that to her own kids'. Amy McCoy, spokesperson for the agency admitted that abuse reports could either be received by fax or phone.
