An Iowa woman has been charged after officials say she kept three children locked in a blacked-out room in filthy conditions

IOWA – According to the officials, her name is Brittany Roozeboom, 31-year-old, of Johnston.

She was charged last week with three counts of child endangerment and one count of child endangerment resulting in bodily injury, according to court records.

According to the officials, the children were kept for extended periods in a room with black-painted cardboard secured to the windows with spray foam, blocking out all light. The room was locked from the outside and had no internal door knob.

She sometimes locked the children in the room so long that they soiled their clothes.

She is being held in the Polk County Jail.
