ASHLAND, OH (WOIO) -

The video that 19 Action News Investigative Reporter Scott Taylor obtained shows a 29-year-old Ashland mom taking police on a guided tour of the house she claims she was a slave in for years.

Jordie Callahan, his girlfriend Jessica Hunt, their friend Daniel J. Brown and Dezerah Silsby all facing federal charges in connection with keeping mom and her daughter locked up inside the house.

All are charged with forced labor.

The FBI says mom and her daughter were beaten and starved.  Also they were threatened to be killed with guns, pit bulls and a 130 pound python.

In the video, you hear mom point out the room she says Jordie Callahan kept his snakes in. 

The FBI claims mom was made to clean the house, do laundry and shop.

The federal complaint says mom was locked up at night and her daughter was tied up.

In the video, mom, who has a mental disability due to a teenage injury, seems calm while leading detectives from room to room.

You don't see any padlocks on doors. No ropes or chains.

Jordie Callahan's mother says her son is innocent and that he was only a roommate and friend of the Ashland mother.

Callahan's former lawyer says he believes the allegations in federal court are not true.
