The parents of an East Feliciana Parish woman are accused of causing her death.
A grand jury on Monday indicted Clay and Sheila Fletcher with second-degree murder.
The parish coroner says Lacey Fletcher died at her parents' home in January. Deputies found the disabled woman on a sofa and surrounded by human filth at the home in Slaughter.
The Jefferson Parish Forensic Center ruled Fletcher's death a homicide caused by at least ten years of neglect.
Evidence indicated she had been on the couch for almost 12 years.
