Woman Who Let Her Paralyzed Husband Get Eaten Alive By Maggots And Rot To Death

A mother-of-two who let her husband rot to death in their filthy, cockroach-infested home is to get just four years in jail.

Paramedics found Mark Fulgham, 36, covered in bed sores and riddled with maggots, after his wife of 12 years Dormanicia called 911 when he began struggling to breathe on December 30, 2015. 

He died in hospital just one day later of severe dehydration, malnutrition and infection. Police said he had suffered such severe starvation that his bones were severely pronounced.
