A 77-year-old Lincoln woman has died, weeks after three relatives were accused of failing to get her medical treatment and leaving her in a urine- and feces-soaked bed for more than a week.

Police Capt. David Beggs says Betty Wickline died Monday at a
care home. He would not comment further about the circumstances.

Wickline's daughter, 53-year-old Sheryl Dunn, has been charged
with abuse of a vulnerable adult. No trial date has been set.

Dunn's 20-year-old daughter, Francis Wilson, and the daughter's
husband, 24-year-old Jonathan Wilson, were charged as accessories.
Their next hearings are April 2.

Court records say Dunn told police she didn't seek help because
her mother wanted to die at home. The Wilsons said it was because
Wickline was uninsured.
