A New Market woman is charged with neglect in connection with the death her 71-year-old mother last week, Sheriff Jeff Coffey reported.

Deputies were called to the Jefferson Memorial emergency room last Wednesday after Sylvia E. Rollins was brought in by paramedics in critical condition, the sheriff said. Investigators were told by paramedics that the elderly woman had been found in an extremely unkempt condition, slumped in a recliner in the garage at her daughter’s residence and struggling to breathe. She was transported to the emergency room by paramedics shortly after 2:30 p.m.
