READING, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania woman has been sentenced to four to 10 years in prison in the death of a disabled man whose foot wounds became severely infected and filled with maggots.
Under such a plea, a defendant doesn’t admit guilt but acknowledges that prosecutors can prove the charges.
Prosecutors said Cunnius’ boyfriend, 43-year-old Jessie McCrimmon, died in 2015 because he didn’t receive proper care and “endured considerable pain.” Investigators said McCrimmon had spina bifida and was missing toes on his right foot and had bone exposed.
His left foot was being held on by necrotic flesh.
