ANTIOCH, California (CBS/AP) They say she would have done anything he asked her to.

Nancy Garrido, the woman some say is the "real monster," faces the same 29 charges and life imprisonment as her husband Phillip Garrido in the 1991 abduction of 11-year-old Jaycee Lee Dugard.

Nancy seemed to have been a key player in keeping 11-year-old Jaycee in secret captivity for nearly two decades, standing by as Phillip raped and even fathered the little girl's two girls.

Phillip's brother, Ron Garrido, claims Nancy was like "a robot," according to an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle.

Phillip Garrido met his future wife while he was serving time at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., for a 1976 rape, according to a spokeswoman for the Nevada Department of Public Safety.

They communicated through letters and then married in a ceremony held behind prison walls, according to Ron Garrido.

Phillip Garrido served about 10 years of a 50-year federal sentence for kidnapping, and less than a year for a concurrent Nevada sentence of five years to life in prison for sexual assault. He was paroled
in 1988.

Neighbors who have met Nancy Garrido say her disturbing non-communicative behavior was even stranger than her husband's religious rants, according to the Telegraph.

"In some ways to me she is the real monster," Cheyvonne Molino, an aquentance of the Garridos, told the British paper. "She is a woman and should never have let this happen."

Molino said she saw Nancy Garrido and Dugard shopping together in a local supermarket this year.

In 1993, a violation of Phillip Garrido's parole conditions sent him back to federal prison from April to August.

The role that Nancy Girrado played in keeping Dugard in captivity while her husband was in prison for four months is not yet fully clear.

But what is clear, is that when Phillip Girrado returned, Dugard was still imprisoned.

He impregnated her shortly thereafter, according to the age of Dugard's first child, 15.
