Woman faces elder abuse charge in Hall County

A 27-year-old woman faces a criminal charge for allegedly neglecting her mother, a stroke victim, resulting in gangrene, sepsis and other medical conditions, Hall County authorities said Friday.
 
Maricela Zamarripa turned herself in to authorities Thursday to face the neglect of an elder charge.
 
Authorities said Zamarripa had been responsible for the care of her disabled 57-year-old mother between October of 2015 and February of this year.
 
Zamarripa's mother, "had suffered from a debilitating stroke requiring a caregiver," Hall County Sheriff's Deputy Nicole Bailes said in an email statement.
 
Investigators said the victim was hospitalized at one point, bringing the case to their attention.
 
"It was determined that Zamarripa’s mother had developed gangrene, sepsis, a lice infestation, along with a massive bed sore as a result of being in Zamarripa’s care," Bailes stated.  "Hospital staff notified Adult Protective Services of Zamarripa’s mother’s condition upon arriving at the emergency room, who then notified our office to conduct an investigation."
 
The sheriff's office obtained the initial warrant for Zamarripa on May 12.
 
She was scheduled to have a Hall County Magistrate Court appearance Friday, according to Bailes.
