BAYOU BLUE, LA - A 30-year-old Bayou Blue woman arrested was booked with cruelty to the infirmed.
April Johnson's arrest comes after deputies called to a house last month found a 69-year-old woman living in a filthy 10-foot by 16-foot wooden shed attached to the home.
Lafourche Parish deputies said the room smelled of urine and rotting flesh.
The elderly woman was identified only as a relative of Johnson.
She was treated for sores that exposed bone and tendons.
If Johnson is convicted, she would face a possible 10 year prison sentence.
