(LYNN) - An Indiana man faces neglect charges after police say his elderly mother stayed in a chair for three months after breaking her hip.

The 54-year-old man was arrested Monday on preliminary charges of neglect of a dependent and nonsupport of a parent.

Police found the man's mother sitting in a chair in the home he shares with his parents in the town of Lynn, about 70 miles (113 kilometers) northeast of Indianapolis.

The Star Press newspaper in Muncie reports the man told police his mother had been in that chair since falling and breaking her hip three months ago, and she urinated and defecated in the chair.

Nurses at a Richmond hospital found several open sores on her body.

Authorities say the family's home was filled with clutter, rodent droppings and insects.
