Son, Girlfriend Charged With Murder After Elderly Woman Found Partially Mummified

SHENANDOAH -- It's been a year since an elderly woman was found dead, but now her son and his girlfriend are being charged with her murder.

Police believe 77-year-old Elaine Latshaw may have been neglected for months.

By the time they found Latshaw in the South Street home in Mahanoy City last August, her foot was so gangrenous, the bone was sticking out.
