The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said Redmon’s wife, who is disabled and struggles with cognitive skills, had asked him to take her to the hospital on July 12.

Redmon is said to have refused to take her out of the truck or take her to the hospital until July 17.

The sheriff’s office said gangrene had developed in several places on her body and she had several extreme open sores.

Sherrie remains in hospital under treatment.

Her husband was charged with first-degree criminal abuse and is currently being held in the Franklin County Regional Penitentiary on $10,000 bail.

A court date has not yet been set, according to online data.
