BLUFF CITY — A woman whose daughter was found dead in their home last December was arrested Wednesday on a homicide charge.

Judy Taylor, 67, was charged with criminally negligent homicide, physical abuse, and gross neglect of an impaired adult.

On Dec. 5, Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office deputies conducted a welfare check at a Harrington Hollow Road residence, where they found an adult woman’s body in the house.

In a news release issued Thursday, a Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman said the deceased woman had not been bathed, fed or taken care of for years while under her mother’s care.

Taylor was held at the Sullivan County Jail on a $25,000 bond.
