Police arrested a Pennsylvania woman on Tuesday in connection with the death of her 83-year-old mother, who prosecutors said was found covered in feces and sores a couple of months before her death.

Ellyn Gottlieb, 58, of Havertown, is charged with first-degree neglect of a care-dependent person, first-degree aggravated assault, involuntary manslaughter, theft by unlawful taking and theft by deception. Authorities have not made public the name of Gottlieb's mother.
