Ohio defendant says she was trying to help mentally disabled woman she's accused of enslaving

One of two people accused of enslaving a mentally disabled woman in an Ohio home for two years with her child is denying the allegations at trial.

Jessica Hunt testified Wednesday in a Youngstown federal court the woman was free to go as she pleased and at times left the home for several days.

Hunt and her boyfriend, Jordie Callahan, have pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors say the pair looted the woman's bank account and public assistance while forcing her and her daughter to live in a locked basement in Ashland.

Hunt says she tried to help the woman care for her daughter.

Two other people charged in the case have pleaded guilty and testified for the prosecution.
