NEWPORT NEWS - A Newport News man is charged with abusing his elderly mother-in-law.

 

Doctors at Mary Immaculate Hospital alerted police after the 90-year-old woman was brought in with physical signs of neglect, like bed sores and other issues, said police spokesman Harold Eley.

That incident on June 1 prompted an investigation by the department's Special Victims Unit into the her caregivers, who were family members in the home, Eley explained.

As as result of the investigation, 52-year-old Stefurn Berry was charged with abuse and neglect - first offense.
