A Florida man was blamed for the death of his 87-year-old grandmother, and authorities said her bed was filled with live maggots.
Brevard County sheriff’s deputies say Allen Arias rushed the unresponsive Anita Arias to the hospital last month. The woman was covered with bedsores and some were infested with larvae.

An autopsy revealed that she had died of dehydration and malnutrition, and her blood sugar was as high as measurable.
Florida Today reports that Arias was charged Thursday with aggravated manslaughter of an elderly man
