Misty Ray Pleads Guilty to Kidnapping Charges, Will Spend Life Behind Bars
ADEL, Iowa -- "Your Honor, during the times of January 31, 2012 through May 12, 2017, in Perry, in Dallas County, Iowa, I intentionally acted to secretly and unreasonably confine Sabrina Ray without her consent," said 41 year-old Misty Jo Bousman Ray. "And, having no authority to do, so I caused such confinement by way of covering the bedroom windows from the outside view, by placing a lock on the door and by causing the door to be locked while she was so confined. During and as a result of that confinement, on May 12, 2017 Sabrina Ray died of malnutrition, which is a serious injury."
