Update today in the case of woman who had to be rescued after spending two years on her toilet:
Her boyfriend, Kory McFarren, 37, was charged with mistreatment of a dependent adult in Ness County, Kan. According to Kansas law, this charge is either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the severity. A dependent adult is someone over 18 who is "unable to protect their own interest."
The arrest comes after paramedics had to rush McFarren's girlfriend to the hospital with the toilet seat melded to her body. She had been unwilling to leave the bathroom for two years. McFarren said he brought her food every day and pleaded with her to come out, but she kept promising she would do it "tomorrow."
Last week, McFarren told the AP: "The only thing I am guilty of is I didn't get her help sooner."
