August 6, 2010 (El Cajon) – Emergency room physicians described the condition of Jeremy Marlow, 28, as the worst case of neglect that they had ever seen. Paramedics brought Marlow, who lived on Graves Avenue in El Cajon, to Grossmont Hospital on January 21. He was unconscious, suffering from infections, covered in open pressure wounds, and weighed less than 100 pounds, according to the San Diego Sheriff’s Department. He died five days later of pneumonia.
Last night his mother, Deborah Marlow, 58, and his brother, Christopher Marlow, 26, were arrested. Both are charged with elder abuse, a crime that can be filed against caregivers for abusing a person of any age.
