Woman charged in death of disabled husband, 35

A St. Louis County woman was accused Tuesday of "recklessly causing" her husband's death last year by failing to feed him or get him proper health care.

Police said Darren Kimbrough, 35, was emaciated and lying dead in squalid conditions when officers arrived at his home last July to assist on a call for an ambulance.

Kimbrough had multiple sclerosis and was "bedridden," according to news reports. Read story in St. Louis Post Dispatch.
