Michigan Woman Charged for Neglecting her Disabled Daughter


A 43-year-old Michigan woman is in jail for neglecting her disabled daughter.

Theresa Terrell was arraigned on charges of second-degree voluntary adult abuse after her 22-year-old daughter was found suffering from malnourishment.

Authorities say Terrell’s daughter weighed only 43 pounds and was found wearing four soiled diapers and a t-shirt.

The young woman was found Wednesday inside a Flint home.

Authorities believe she had been in a room in the house for several weeks.

The victim is now being treated at a hospital.

If convicted, her mother could face up to four years in jail.
