The city of Philadelphia is the target in a federal lawsuit filed on behalf of the the mother of Beatrice Weston, the young woman found chained in a Tacony Basement in 2011.
A Philadelphia judge has rejected most defense motions to dismiss charges against four defendants in the Tacony basement captives’ case.
An attorney says the children of two defendants in the so-called “basement of horrors” case have now been formally adjudicated dependent and they have been placed outside the city by the Department of Human Services.
Anna Rotondo has never met Linda Ann Weston. She’s never been in the basement of horrors, where police allege Weston was keeping four mentally-challenged adults as she stole their Social Security disability checks.
