HUDSON, Fla. (WSET) -- A Florida man was arrested after his 94-year-old mother was found in the fetal position on a couch covered in feces, according to WFLA.

Police say he neglected to care for his 94-year-old mother despite receiving money each month to do so.

Deputies arrested 46-year-old Randall Caraway Wednesday, July 24.

According to an arrest report, medical staff found fecal matter caked into the 94-year-old woman’s skin, indicating she hadn’t been cleaned in more than a month. Hospital staff told deputies the woman had also developed bed sores and was “contracted” into a fetal position as the result of staying immobile in the same position for so long.

The arrest report added that also formed pressure ulcers.

Caraway is the caretaker and legal guardian of the victim, according to the arrest report.

Deputies say he receives his mother’s income of $1,250 a month and gets an additional $650.

He admitted to police he was receiving his mom’s income but could not say where the money went.

Caraway was arrested and charged with neglect of the elderly. He was taken to Land O Lakes Jail.
