SPRING HILL, Fla. (AP) - A Florida woman is being held on
$15,000 bail on charges that she forced a teenage boy to sleep on
the floor, beat him with wood and hoses and kept him locked in a
bathroom for days.
Hernando County Sheriff's Office deputies say the 17-year-old
escaped Monday and sought help from a neighbor. The teen told
deputies that Tailing Gigliotti had bound his hands, beaten him
with wood and a water hose and locked him in a bathroom while she
went to work.
The teen also told deputies that Gigliotti made him sleep on the
floor for more than three years. She allegedly also locked him in a
bathroom and shut off the electricity whenever she went to work.
Gigliotti is charged with aggravated child abuse and false
imprisonment. The teen is in state custody.
