HOPKINSVILLE, KY.-- A Hopkinsville woman was charged with reckless abuse of an adult after her elderly father was found with sores on his legs and roaches climbing all over his bed. 

40-year-old Anissa McCombs is the caretaker for her father, but allegedly made him live in filth. Roaches were not only all over his bed, but all over the room and infested the kitchen cabinets. Rotten food was found in the refrigerator and beer cans were found covering the floors. 

The report also says the man's shower was filled with clothes and a bathtub was filled with standing water. 

McCombs is due in court later this month. She has admitted to the use of alcohol and marijuana.
