NEW YORK (CBS/AP) Did Nancy Garrido, the wife of monster rapist and alleged abductor Phillip Garrido, deliver the two babies that her husband purportedly fathered with Jaycee Lee Dugard?
Dugard's children, now aged 15 and 11, have never seen a doctor, authorities said.
But Nancy Garrido was a licensed nursing assistant in California between 1989 and 1995. Her nursing background might help to explain how Dugard could deliver two healthy babies without visiting a hospital.
Nancy Garrido has worked in the healthcare system since 1981.
Next-door neighbor Helen Boyer, 78, said Nancy Garrido had worked in nursing homes for years but stopped about five years ago to become her step-mother's primary caregiver when she became bedridden. This all occurred while Dugard, kidnapped in 1991, was allegedly held prisoner in the backyard of the home Garrido shared with her husband.
In 1993, when Phillip Garrido went to prison for six weeks on a parole violation, the former nursing assistant watched over Dugard, authorities said.
Shortly after Phillip Garrido returned from jail, he impregnated a then 14-year-old Dugard with their first child, say police. That girl is now 15 years old. He impregnated her again four years later, cops say.
Nancy Garrido is being charged, with her husband, in the kidnapping and rape of Dugard, who, authorities say, was held captive as a sex slave for 18 years in the couple's Antioch, Calif., backyard.
