Woman Sentenced For Failing To Care For Sick Mother


A Ross County judge sentenced a woman to 60 days in jail for failing to care for her sick mother.

Kelly Morrison pleaded guilty last month to failure to provide for a functionally impaired person.

Her mother, Eloise Grant, 76, died in March of 2011.
Medics found her sitting in a chair covered in her own waste. They say she looked like she had been sitting there for several days.

Grant suffered from dementia, sepsis and a stage-four ulcer.

The judge sentenced Morrison to community control for three years, 100 hours of community service and 60 days in jail to be served on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Her attorney said she was simply overwhelmed by her responsibilities.
