Maggots were 'eating woman alive'

A man has admitted reckless homicide in the death of his sick mother, found dead from a blood infection with rotting bedsores and maggots on her body.

Court records show 33-year-old Brian White of Cincinnati, Ohio, also pleaded guilty to failure to provide for a functionally impaired adult in the July death of Jorene White, who had debilitating arthritis and was bedridden.

Hamilton County prosecutors said the woman was "being eaten alive by maggots".

Court records show prosecutors agreed to recommend five years of probation for White.

The charges carry a maximum sentence of six and a half years in prison. He will be sentenced on April 26.

White's father was convicted of the same charges last year. The father told the judge he did the best he could.

The judge ordered probation and psychiatric treatment.
