DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A 74-year-old suburban Philadelphia woman has been sentenced to at least a month in prison for beating her elderly husband and locking him, naked, outside their home in freezing temperatures.

The Bucks County Courier Times (http://bit.ly/1z8nW7w ) reports that Dolores Labrum pleaded guilty in Bucks County Court to charges that include simple assault, false imprisonment and reckless endangerment.

She was sentenced to one to 23 months behind bars.

Newtown Township police found Labrum’s 78-year-husband standing bruised, naked, shivering and unresponsive on the balcony of their apartment last December. Court documents describe him as frail, weak and suffering from dementia.

He told police it was at least the fifth time in the past year his wife had made him strip and stand naked on the balcony after an argument.
