Woman in Adult Abuse Case Dies

Shirley Chittum died Saturday night, one day after she was rushed to a hospital and her son was arrested because authorities say he neglected her.

The Morning News of Northwest Arkansas reports on this and, incredibly, the second report is more horrifying and heartbreaking than the item I referenced Saturday.

Check out the son's story. It sounds reasonable - to a point. There are many older people who refuse medicine and ordinary care. How things ended is beyond words.
