Woman Pleads Guilty in "Tacony Dungeon" Case

PHILADELPHIA (WTXF) – A Philadelphia woman will face life in prison for holding disabled adults in a basement for over ten years.

55-year-old Linda Weston pleaded guilty to her involvement in the so-called “Tacony Dungeon Case.” She was charged with life in prison along with an additional 80-year sentence.

According to prosecutors, Weston and three other family members used the victim’s social security and disability benefits while holding them captive.

Investigators uncovered the “Trail of Terror” in 2011 when they found four abused victims inside the basement of a Tacony building.

Police say that two other victims died in her care in 2005 and 2008.
