SPRINGFIELD, Ore. (AP) - Springfield police say a 50-year-old man was charged with criminal mistreatment after his elderly mother was found in a home that was filled with garbage and raw sewage.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/1N3HtOv ) that police have accused Nicholas Dale Antone Jr. of financially exploiting and neglecting his 76-year-old mother.

The woman was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening issues related to poorly monitored diabetes.

Police say Springfield City Code Enforcement personnel were advised of the conditions at the home and an inspection will be forthcoming.

Antone was taken into custody and booked into the Lane County Jail.
