Issac Wilson

Sumter County Sheriff's Office has charged Issac Wilson, 74, with Neglect of a Vulnerable Adult Resulting in Death following the death of his wife.

EMS and deputies found Louise Wilson, 78, in the couple's home on James Street in Sumter County on March 15.

Wilson was in a bed and unconscious when paramedics arrived at the home.

She had open sores, skin peeling off and a green substance covering her legs, according to Captain Allen Dailey with the Sumter County Sheriff's Office.

He says you could see the bones through her skin because she was so malnourished.

Investigators believe Wilson had been in the bed for a long period of time without being cared for and died as a result of her husband's neglect.
