A woman was locked into a closet by her husband and daughter.

Police in Georgia, said that the woman was locked in the closet for an entire day.

Christopher Marvin Shultz, 53, of Appling, is accused of locking his wife in the closet, nailing it shut with the help of their daughter.

He kept her inside all day before finally freeing her. Shultz was charged with false imprisonment.

The daughter of the victim, Tamara Price, was also arrested and charged with false imprisonment.

When the victim was freed, she left the home and flagged down a Lincoln County deputy.

She told the officer that she had been locked in a closet all day with the door shut with nails.

The father and daughter told police that the victim stole the keys to the family truck and locked herself in the closet, according to a sheriff’s report.

The husband eventually removed the nails and allowed his wife to leave. He also cautioned her over the bent nails that were sticking out of the closet door.

Investigators went to the home at 3030 Ray Owens Road, and found the bent nails protruding out of the closet door.

The police report states that the husband is the owner of Shultz construction company and the daughter works as a housekeeper at a hotel.
