Prosecutors have charged a Salt Lake City man with elder abuse after his mother was found dead in a chair where she may have been sitting for weeks.
The charge filed Friday against Bradley D. Myers, 51, is a felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison. Prosecutors did not charge Myers with any sort of homicide.
On April 5, Salt Lake City police found 74-year-old Geneil Larsen dead in the home she shared with Myers. Larsen was sitting in a chair covered in urine and feces, court documents say, and the path to the home's one bathroom was obstructed by garbage.
