Danelle Daunchet - Disfigured Own 10 Year Old Daughter After Binding Her Hands With Cable Ties For Months So She Wouldn’t Eat

Denver, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) -- Danelle Daunchet, a 52-year-old Denver woman has been arrested on child abuse charges after police say she bound her daughter's hands together "every night", so the little girl wouldn't eat food during the night.

Doctors say a 10-year-old girl faces "substantial risk" of suffering serious permanent disfigurement after Danelle Daunchet used zip ties to bind the girls hands behind her back each night over the past year.

According to investigators, the victim told police her daily routine. She would come home from school, feed the dog, complete her homework and then go to bed around 9:30.

Police say that's when Daunchet bound the little girl's hands so she wouldn't get out of bed and eat food during the night. The victim told police that "when her mother removes the zips, she removes them with a knife, which sometimes cuts and pokes her," according to the arrest affidavit.

Daunchet was booked into the Denver County Jail on charges of child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury and two counts of child abuse. She was released after posting $50,000 bond.

Daunchet is scheduled to appear back in court on Jan 23.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

As sickening as this story is, it's amazing how little coverage this story is getting even in the very city it took place in.

Imagine, a little 10-year-old child permanently disfigured after being bound for what amounts to about 1/3 of her life over the past year. Her little bones growing in adjustment to being bound.

There are just no words to properly describe what goes on in the twisted minds of some people.

What happened to the little girl? Is she back with this crazy bitch?

Menalipa, she is in the custody of protective services, likely narrowing down a foster family at this time. Luckily this woman won't be a candidate for awhile, as she'll be going to jail for awhile.

Anon, WHO GIVES A RATS ASS WHAT THE OTHER SIDE OF THIS CHILD WAS LIKE!! She was a child period!! If this so called 'Mother' couldn't handle her the state would've taken custody long before she hurt her. Or here's a thought maybe she should've given her up for adoption!!! She's a piece of shit and so are you!! I hope she rots in hell!!!

These are LIES! I know this woman and her child and this incident happened ONCE. While it is inexcusable that she did it even once, no one seems to care that the child was the abuser and was harassing her mother until 2:00 am when the mother finally, in her sleep deprived state, did the unthinkable. This isn't a little girl, she is bigger than her mother. Also, the mother adopted the child and was never told by the state that she was adopting a crack baby. For you to "hope she rots in hell", not knowing the whole story and believing the lies that are being told, is irresponsible and mean. Don't you people get it that the media only tells you what they want you to know - you are like sheep being lead to the slaughter by believing only what you are told...there is always more to the story and there is more to this. Also, they are having a difficult time finding a foster family who can keep the child because of her aggressive behavior.
