Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – A woman charged with torturing and abusing her teenaged son in Delta County has been sentenced to up to 50 years in prison.

46-year old Susan Bardo of Escanaba was sentenced today to two concurrent sentences of 20-50 years in prison for torture and first-degree child abuse of her 15-year-old son.  Bardo and 47-year old Carl Pellinen were arrested in April after officials removed her 15-year-old son from their home.

Authorities found the teen living upstairs in an 8-by-10-foot room made from tarps that he was rarely allowed to leave.

Pellinen is scheduled to be sentenced on Monday for first-degree child abuse and first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
