(KMOV) -- Three individuals have been charged with criminal abuse and neglect of 85-year-old Maryann Paproth of Edwardsville, Illinois. Jennifer A. Dean, 42-years old, Jacob R. Dean and Kayleen M. Dean, 21-years-old, have been charged for neglect when Paproth was found unresponsive in the Dean home with poor physical condition and wounds on her body.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office says they investigated and discovered the Deans were collectively responsible for her well-being, but were instead mistreating Paproth. Paproth died of complications on February 24, 2011.

The sheriff's office says that the abuse of the victim by her own relatives was a despicable act, and any abuse will not be tolerated.

Bond was set at $75,000 on each defendant. Jennifer and Kayleen Dean posted bond and were released. Jacob Dean remains in the custody of the Madison County Jail.
