A disabled woman in the care of her husband and son was discovered living in unhealthy conditions and reportedly had maggots covering her decomposing flesh. Her family members are facing charges for the alleged abuse.

A Sugar Hill, Georgia, obese and bedridden elderly woman living with her husband and son as her caretakers lost consciousness last Thursday, and Gwinnett County Fire Department Emergency Medical Technicians responded to the call for help.

The fire crew that dispatched in response to the call had been to the woman’s home one month prior when they transported her back from a trip to the hospital and assisted her into her home with the use of a “Mega Mover;” a special tarp designated for moving very large patients. When they came back to the apartment this time they believed that the woman had remained upon the same tarp with which they brought her home on since their previous visit. The once-clean canvas was now allegedly stained with fecal matter and the woman’s legs appeared to be blackened and decomposing. Maggots and cockroaches were reportedly eating the dead flesh from her body and they did not believe she would survive.

A Moundville, Alabama man has been charged with domestic violence for accusations that he became physically aggressive with his roommate.

On Friday, 52-year-old Duane Barry Smith allegedly became upset when he ate a bowl of Cap’n Crunch cereal and learned that it was stale. He assumed that his roommate did not close the package properly after he had used it himself, and he called the man out on his supposed action.

Smith told the man that since he is lacking a full set of teeth it is painful to eat the cereal when it is not fresh. He reportedly then became angry and tried to force his roommate to remove his false teeth and chew some of the hardened product so that he could feel the discomfort for himself.

Jason ‘Mayhem’ Miller stood in court with his trademark pink mohawk on Wednesday and was sentenced to three years probation and 100 days in jail for a list of felonies involving multiple clashes with the Orange County police. Miller who is 36 years old, plead guilty to about a dozen felonies and misdemeanors which included assault on a peace officer, battery and resisting arrest.

Miller got a plea bargain with Orange County Superior Court Judge Robert Fitzgerald. He was given double credit for his 50 days of time served, so he will not have to spend any more time behind bars, his attorney Cameron Talley said.

Talley reported that Miller has two strikes on his record now and could have some serious consequences if he violates his probation. According to Miller’s lawyer the former champion MMA fighter had lost his job as a commentator for Fox Sports and became engulfed in depression after allegations of domestic violence with his ex-girlfriend in his Mission Viejo home in 2013. In February a jury acquitted him of those charges that seemed to have triggered his problems.

Michelle Betancourt was sentenced on Tuesday for stabbing her three year old son during a domestic dispute with the child’s father.

In May 2015, Michelle Betancourt of Los Angeles and her child’s father got into a heated argument. The twenty-three year old woman lost control and threw a knife at the man, but it hit her child instead. Neighbors reported terrifying screaming and crying and a woman yelling something about “a lot of blood.” Neighbors saw Betancourt running down the driveway, holding the wounded boy, while screaming hysterically. The boy’s father initially claimed that the boy had stabbed himself.

The boy’s injuries were life-threatening, but he did recover. Betancourt was arrested and charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and personal infliction of great bodily injury. Although police originally claimed the assault was intentional, after thoroughly reviewing the case prosecutors decided they could not file attempted murder charges. Attempted murder requires the specific intent to murder, whereas Betancourt acted wantonly and recklessly. Her attorney insists that she did not intend to harm her child.
