3 accused of holding woman captive in Midlothian home for 12 years

WTVR CBS 6 has been reporting on this case since 2019.

Federal officials said the victim, a native of Pakistan, was related to the men by marriage, and that for 12 years, they essentially kept her as a slave at their London Park Drive home.

The three limited her food supply, abused her, forced her to perform domestic tasks, and threatened to separate her from her children between March 2002 and August 2014, according to prosecutors.

Sentencing will be later this year.
