INDICE DE GALERIAS
CLEVELAND (AP) — Three people accused of enslaving a mentally disabled woman and her child will be locked up in Ohio while awaiting trial.
One defendant decided not to seek bond Monday. A federal magistrate judge in Cleveland ordered two co-defendants jailed, saying they’re dangers to the community.
A fourth co-defendant is pregnant and was allowed last week to remain free pending trial. The government won’t comment on why she was treated differently.
The Ashland case now goes before a federal grand jury.
The defendants are charged with enslaving the woman for two years, threatening her, beating her and making her do housework.
The mother of one defendant calls the allegations lies. She says the woman was friends with her son and another defendant and they offered her a place to live.
