Authorities say Vickie Balogh had been dead for some seven hours when one of the brothers drove her to a hospital.

Investigators say Mrs. Balogh was extremely emaciated with bedsores and lesions on her skin when hospital staff examined her, according to WDIV.

The cause of death was ruled as malnutrition caused by cachexia, or wasting disease.

Balogh reportedly suffered from a disease similar to Parkinson's and was incapacitated and living with her sons.

Police charge she died "as a direct result of gross negligence" on the part of Grant and Gabriel Balogh.
