Woman held, abused for 9 mos.: Police

Police in Baltimore County say a 22-year-old woman was held against her will and abused for as long as nine months before being dropped off critically injured at a hospital.

Police said Thursday that two people have been charged with attempted murder, assault and false imprisonment.

Police say the victim, who has a 1-year-old child, remains in critical condition. Authorities say she had been burned with cigarettes, beaten and kicked while imprisoned.

Police say 29-year-old Germaine Smith-Bey and his 37-year-old girlfriend Kimberly Stacy King kept the woman bound in a bathroom in their apartment.

They're also accused of using her ATM card to steal monthly disability checks from her bank account.

Police say the couple shared the apartment with the woman before turning on her.
