A Virginia woman was sentenced to spend nearly three years in prison after allegedly taking part in orchestrating what authorities called a “baby fight club.”

Kierra Spriggs was convicted of child cruelty after testimony she, along with a co-worker, abused toddlers by stepping on their toes, feeding them Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and making them fight each other.

The victims were a group of 2-year-olds who were cared for in what Minnieland designated its "monkey room,” reports NBC Washington. 

NBC Washington reports that Spriggs will spend 33 months behind bars for the abuse at Minnieland Academy in 2013.
