Pinellas Park, Florida -- Pinellas Park Police arrested a woman accused of neglecting her husband who has been bedridden since January.

Police say Sharon Tillman neglected her husband, Gregory, for so long he had maggots, an open wound to the bone on his leg, and bed sores on his body. Tillman was hospitalized in January after reportedly suffering a spider bite that left him bedridden.

When he was recently taken to Largo Medical Center medical personnel called police and DCF to investigate how his injuries became so severe.

Gregory, who was emaciated to the point he weighed between 90-95 pounds at 5'11", told investigators they have no money and often have no food.
