Killing, Excrement, two news stories about elder abuse

 The murder of 65-year-old Kathleen Wilkinson, who was choked to death allegedly at the hands of her husband, is the second Saratoga County homicide in less than a year that was tied to elder abuse. The first was a murder-suicide on Saratoga Lake.

A Conyers man was charged with elder abuse after his elderly parents were found living in their own excrement, with open sores on their body, surrounded by rotting food.

On Friday, around 6 p.m., Rockdale County Sheriff's Office deputies, as well as a crisis team supported by the state Department of Behavioral Health and Disabilities, were called out to 2618 Union Church Road, the home of a 78-year-old woman and her 71-year-old husband.
