Dungeon Case Goes to Trial

A judge has ordered Linda Ann Weston, her boyfriend Gregory Thomas, and her daughter Jean McIntosh to stand trial for allegedly holding four mentally handicapped adults captive in a basement in Philadelphia’s Tacony section. Authorities believe that the three suspects, with Weston as the ring leader, withheld food from the victims while beating them, locking them in closets and, in some instances, forcing them into prostitution. The defendants will be in court again on January 12th. [CNN]
