Wis. pair accused of ignoring fallen relative who later died

Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- A Madison woman and her son are accused of abandoning their 70-year-old relative after she fell to the floor, and authorities say the pair went out for pizza rather than help her.  The relative died two days later.

Prosecutors filed charges Tuesday against the victim's 71-year-old sister, Veronica King of Madison, and 45-year-old nephew, Steven King of Evansville.

The charges include first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse.

The criminal complaint says Mary Coleman fell at Veronica King's home on Whenona Drive in May of 2009. 

A Wisconsin State Journal report says after Coleman died, the Kings allegedly stashed her body in the garage.
