The Horrifying Reason This Woman Kept Her Mom’s Corpse For a Year

Here’s some news that’s both horrifying and depressing for your Saturday afternoon!

New York Daily News reports on an upstate New York woman who is going to jail for not reporting the death of her 93-year-old mother for more than a year so she could keep cashing in on her Social Security.

Last Friday, a judge sentenced 60-year-old Mary Kersting to six months in jail for failing to call the authorities after her mother died in the apartment below hers. As her mother’s body rotted, Kersting collected her mother’s Social Security and pension checks, totaling nearly $14,000.

The police discovered the body on a routine visit some 14 months after the woman’s death.

Kersting pleaded guilty to grand larceny, improperly disposing of a body, and endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physcially disabled person.

Kersting will serve six months in jail, five years of probation, and perform 500 hours of community service.
