Police say Delissa Navonne Crayton, 47, refused to help her mother when she collapsed in the bedroom of their family home in Texas, back in 2016.

Investigators believe Jacqueline Louise Crayton was 71 when she died “within a few days” of suffering the non-life-threatening fall.

Her corpse then rotted on the floor of the two-bedroom San Antonio home for three years before skeletal remains were eventually found by police on Sunday night.

According to local media, they reportedly received a tip from Child Protective Services.

Crayton lived in the house with her mother’s body and her daughter, who was under 15 years old at the time.

The pair reportedly slept in a separate bedroom to the body.

Crayton was arrested on Wednesday and charged with second-degree felony of injury to a child under the age of 15.

Currently being held at Guadalupe County Jail on a £160,000 bond, she could face charges of up to £8,000 and 20 years in jail.

The child was rescued by child protection and has been placed in the care of relatives.

More charges are anticipated.
