A foster mum tied a three-year-old girl up with bedsheets to stop her moving then left her to starve to death.
Sick Sherrie Dirk, 34, was looking after the youngster when she used three sheets to “immobilize” her.
The foster mum then left the little girl alone in a room with the door shut where she died a torturous death from hunger and thirst.
She was discovered by foster dad Bryce Dirk, 32, around five hours later with a single sheet wrapped around her neck.
Dirk has now pleaded guilty to second-degree murder faces up to 25 years in jail when she is sentenced on December 3.
Her husband Bryce Dirk also admitted second-degree murder last month for turning a blind eye to the little girl’s suffering.
The couple’s four other children were removed from their homes last year.
A trial to terminate their parental rights is scheduled for next month.
