FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - The sister and daughter of an 85-year-old woman have been arrested after authorities found her unresponsive and covered in feces and trash at their Fayetteville home.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the 75-year-old sister and 54-year-old daughter were arrested Monday in connection with abuse of an impaired person. They were being held at the Washington County Detention Center.

A preliminary arrest report says the fire department was called to the home around 11:45 p.m. Sunday. Firefighters found the woman on a couch with wounds that exposed bone in her knee and ankle as well as maggots inside deep lacerations on her legs.

The daughter, described as the woman’s caregiver in the report, told police the woman fell June 13 and was placed on a couch.

The woman was being treated at a local hospital Monday.
