VERONA, Pa. – A Pennsylvania couple has been jailed in the death of a disabled man who weighed just 76 pounds when he died last year.
Forty-eight-year-old Adam Haynes and 58-year-old Pamela McNeal, of Verona, were charged with criminal homicide, neglect of a care dependent person and other counts Wednesday after the Allegheny County medical examiner ruled 54-year-old David Fuhrman's death a homicide.
The married couple had cared for Fuhrman since his caregiver died about 15 years ago. Police say Fuhrman had the mentality of a young child.
Fuhrman was found dead in bed in November 2015 after Haynes called 911. He was suffering from bed sores and malnourishment. The medical examiner determined Fuhrman died from a blood infection caused by bed sores and pneumonia.
Court papers don't list attorneys for the couple.
