MILTON, Delaware (WPVI) -- A Delaware woman is accused of abusing her three children and holding them captive inside her home.

Investigators say 35-year-old Christina Morris severely beat her 12-year-old daughter.

That girl managed to escape and was brought to a local hospital by her father.

Police then went to Morris' home on West Circle Drive in Milton, where they found her two other children, a 14-year-old and a 4-year-old. Investigators say they had also been abused.

Police say Morris used a baseball bat, belts and even a high-heeled shoe to beat the children.
