A 61-year-old Florida woman lived with her dead mother for 6 years so she could collect her social security checks, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.
Penelope Jordan collected more than $60,000 since 2003, police said. Her mother, Timmie Jordan, was found on a bed in a spare bedroom, surrounded by clutter, MyFOXOrlando.com reported.
She told investigators she didn't have enough money for a proper burial, police said.
Animal control visited Jordan's home several time in the past three years after neighbors complained about the smell.
Jordan was charged with grand theft and fraud.
