According to court documents, Enoch intentionally withheld food and water from the girl “for the specific purpose of inflicting pain by means of starvation for revenge or for the sadistic purpose of hatred of CA due to the fact CA was not her biological child."
Enoch was not the girl's biological mother but went by the name Anderson before the couple divorced in August, KCRA reported. Anderson fathered two children with Enoch, and they lived with the couple in Reno, according to court documents.
According to court documents, Anderson and Enoch kept Cari Anderson's body in a closet at their Reno home before renting a U-Haul van, the Bee reported. The couple then drove the child's remains to Sacramento and convinced a friend to keep the duffel bag in a sealed box in their storage locker, the newspaper reported.
The couple's friend became suspicious of the box and found Cali Anderson's emaciated body, the Bee reported. The friend called the police, who arrested Enoch and Anderson.
