Couch potato

Michael Eugene Sticken, 60, who lives in Florida, has been charged with failure to report his mother’s death.

He kept his dead mother’s body on his couch.

Joyce Willis, 81, was found by police under a pile of blankets. Willis had been dead for perhaps four months.

Sticken has also been charged with grand theft; he had withdrawn his mother’s Social Security payments from their joint bank account since January.
