(LAWRENCEBURG) - A Lawrenceburg woman is wanted on a warrant after prosecutors say she left her morbidly obese sister alive decomposing in a chair for three weeks.

A grand jury indicted 58-year-old Vickie Holdcraft Friday on charges of reckless homicide, neglect and perjury.

She still had not been arrested as of Sunday.

Police say 61-year-old Priscilla Frieberger spent the last three weeks of her life decomposing in a recliner in the Lawrenceburg home she shared with Holdcraft.

Police say Frieberger's skin was stuck to the chair and her body had started to decompose before her sister called 911 on Oct. 2.

Frieberger later died of pneumonia and a blood infection.
