staffordshire - A woman from the English county of Staffordshire has left her 86-year-old mother in a chair for a year. The elderly woman died from the consequences of neglect and inflammation. The 68-year-old daughter has been given a suspended prison sentence of 20 months.
Doreen Shuflebotham suffered from severe physical complaints in the months before she died, the judge says in Stafford.
Shufflebotham died on September 6 in 2016 after her physical symptoms had worsened, writes The Guardian. She had a fracture in her thigh that had been infected, she was suffering from pulmonary embolism, blood poisoning, thrombosis and acute bacterial meningitis, states the Staffordshire police.
