Carer accused of neglect set to apply for bail

A Somerset carer accused of neglecting and mistreating an elderly woman so badly she may never fully recover, is set to apply for bail.
Michelle Leanne Stitt has been charged with failing to provide the necessities of life to the 77-year-old woman for more than three weeks last month.
The woman was taken into intensive care at Ipswich Hospital on May 29 after being found by police at a squalid property at Tarampa in a serious condition.
Stitt also faces a grievous bodily harm charge over an incident involving the woman in late April.
