SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Federal prosecutors say a South Dakota woman caused the death of her disabled son by keeping her home cluttered with trash and junk.
They say because of the clutter, Kathleen Kuzior’s 29-year-old son, Richard Kuzior, died after a March house fire in McLaughlin.
Kathleen Kuzior was indicted last week on charges of involuntary manslaughter and abuse and neglect of a disabled adult.
The Sioux Falls Argus Leader says Kuzior hasn’t made a plea on the charges and hasn’t appeared in court.
The indictment says Kuzior kept her home so cluttered with garbage, junk and material she was hoarding that her son couldn’t escape the fire, and others couldn’t get in to save him.
