The District Attorney's Office announced this morning that it has charged the daughter of Linda Ann Weston who lived in a second-floor apartment in the Tacony building where four mentally disabled adults were found in a basement Saturday.

The D.A.'s Office said her name is Jean McIntosh, 32. However, her real first name is actually believed to be Jane. The landlord of the building, a public-database, a source who knows her, and her cellphone voicemail identifies her as Jane.

She faces similar charges as her mother, Linda Ann Weston, 51, who was arrested Saturday and is believed to be the mastermind of an alleged scheme to steal victims' Social Security disability benefits.

The charges are kidnapping, conspiracy, unlawful restraint, false imprisonment, aggravated assault and related offenses. McIntosh is accused as a co-conspirator in the kidnapping and imprisonment of the four adults found locked in the dank, dirty basement boiler room of the Tacony apartment building on Longshore Avenue near Vandike Street. She is expected to be arraigned sometime today.

Also arrested Saturday in the case were Weston's boyfriend, Gregory Thomas, 47, and another man, Eddie Wright, 50.
