MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A woman is facing a neglect charge after her fiancée was found living in filthy conditions.

Five days later, the victim’s daughter visited again and found him in the same condition. This time, she observed maggots on his body. He was taken to Methodist in critical condition.

Investigators say Tammy Hardin admitted to being engaged to the victim and lived with him for more than 10 years. She is now facing aggravated neglect of an elderly or vulnerable adult.
