Albany Twp., PA (WBNG Binghamton) Two recent cases of child abuse in Bradford County are related, police said.

On Monday, Pennsylvania State Police said 18-year-old Kevin Frankenfield had been arrested for allegedly having sex with a 12-year-old girl with cerebral palsy and taking nude photos of her when he was a minor.

According to our media partners WENY-TV, the victim in that case is the same girl who was allegedly kept in a cage and locked in a closet, as reported by Pennsylvania State Police last week.

Her parents, 55-year-old Richard and 49-year-old Mary Beth Frankenfield were arrested and charged with false imprisonment.

They were taken to the Bradford County Jail on $85,000 bail.

WENY-TV also reports that Richard Frankenfield is a level 3 registered sex offender.
