A judge has ordered a man to stand trial in the case of four mentally disabled adults found locked in a Philadelphia basement.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports ( http://bit.ly/zPljmE) that Thursday's decision reverses an earlier ruling that dropped all charges against Eddie Wright.
The 51-year-old will now face trial on assault, kidnapping and related charges. Prosecutors say Wright played a role in a scam to imprison people and steal their government benefits.
In December, a different judge dismissed charges against Wright. He said testimony showed that Wright was also a victim of Linda Weston, who prosecutors said was the scheme's mastermind.
But prosecutors refiled charges. They presented documents Thursday that they say prove Wright and Weston worked together.
Weston and two others are being held for trial. They haven't entered pleas.
