PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A woman is charged with kidnapping after police say they found an "extremely thin" woman tied to a bed inside a north Philadelphia home.
 
Authorities say officers who responded to an unrelated disturbance found the 36-year-old woman Saturday morning living in "unsuitable conditions" with sores on her body.
 
A police spokeswoman says the woman "appeared to be special needs and has a limited vocabulary." The woman was cut free and taken to a hospital for evaluation.
 
Police say they don't know her relationship to 46-year-old Regina Bennett, who's also charged with assault, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment and related offenses. She was held on 10 percent of $500,000 bail.
 
A phone listing for Bennett couldn't be found and public defenders couldn't be reached Sunday.
