SANDERSVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County woman has been charged with abuse of a vulnerable adult after a bad odor led to the discovery of a man laying in his own feces. 

According to Curtis Pitts with Sandersville police, it was reported that neighbors feared someone had died at the secluded home. 

Pitts said once officers arrived they found the house in deplorable condition.

The 80-year old victim, who is an invalid, was found separate from the rest of the house in a back room. 

Pitts said they found the man in a bed laying in his own feces and urine.

The commode chair by the bed was filled with old feces and the room was also filled with trash and debris, according to Pitts.  

Investigators also found that there hadn't been any air conditioning in the home since early summer.

Pitts said the victim was transported to a local hospital for medical treatment.

Sandy Cockrell was charged in connection to the incident. 

Jones County Justice Court Judge David Lyons set Cockrell’s bond at $5,000.
