WICKED: Woman Tied Disabled Cousin to Urine-Soaked Bed and Lived Off Her SS Checks

Published on August 19, 2013

A Philadelphia woman is accused of tying her disabled cousin to a urine-soaked bed in a scheme to steal her assistance checks.

Regina Bennett, 46, was first arrested early Saturday morning after an altercation with her neighbour. Cops doing a walk-through of her home found a malnourished, disabled woman bound by her arms and legs with rags to a urine-soaked bed wearing only a diaper. As the handicapped woman’s caregiver, Bennett had control over her cousin’s finances and received her social security checks, according to reports.

Instead of public assistance, Bennett was handed on Sunday a litany of charges ranging from assault, to making terroristic threats, kidnapping, public drunkenness and false imprisonment.

Police were called just before midnight Friday night after Bennett allegedly got into a drunken brawl with a neighbor, according to WPVI. They were told by neighbors there may be a small child inside.

Cops searching the house of horrors said they instead found a 36-year-old woman with cerebral palsy, severe malnutrition, bed sores and other signs of abuse being kept prisoner in squalid conditions wearing only a diaper, according to NBC Philadelphia.

Officers untied the allegedly tortured woman and sent her to a local hospital.
