Other inmates are threatening to rape and kill the 54-year-old Garrido, sources tell CBS News, and she is being kept in isolation for her own protection.

They also report that Garrido, who once had a full compound, including her convicted rapist husband Phillip Garrido, their alleged kidnap victim Dugard and her two daughters, is feeling "very lonely," and now spends most of her time reading the bible.

Poor Nancy. Maybe we should cheer her up with a gift basket.

Nancy Garrido and Phillip Garrido are charged with 29 felonies including kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment associated with the 1991 abduction of 11-year-old Dugard and keeping her in the backyard of their Antioch, Calif. home.

According to former San Francisco prosecutor Michael Cardoza, who spoke with Jeff Glor on The Early Show, Nancy Garrido is merely getting the jailhouse welcome which prisoners reserve only for those who have committed the most heinous crimes.

"In a prison system," Cardoza said, "there is a certain code of morality, and this type of crime ranks at the very, very bottom. So it doesn't shock me either one of them has been threatened with death or the other type of thing, the rape, whatever else they've been threatened with."
