|Quami Dewayne Kelly|
A man was arrested on a charge of exploitation of the elderly or disabled after allegedly stuffing feces into his mother’s mouth, according to police in Georgia.
Augusta police said that they have arrested 20-year-old Quami Dewayne Kelly, after the caretaker of his 45-year-old mother caught him stuffing feces into her mouth.
Kelly was charged with one count of exploitation of the elderly or disabled. He was booked into the Richmond County jail.
According to the police investigation, the victim was diagnosed with dementia several years ago. She is not able to speak and requires constant care.
The caretaker, who has worked with the woman for a year, told police that she noticed that recently the woman has had a bad smell, but could not understand what was causing it.
On Tuesday, the woman was lying on the couch when Kelly leaned down, kissed her goodbye and put something in her mouth before leaving the home.
The caretaker approached the woman, and at first, she thought it was chocolate until she smelled something foul and found feces in her mouth.
She worked quickly to remove it, resulting in getting some on her shirt. She then called police to report the abuse.
