A man accused of starving his 80-year-old father and leaving him covered in waste has been arrested.

James Madison is accused of leaving his father, David, in bed so long that his skin tissue died.

Police say they found the elder Madison malnourished and dehydrated Tuesday after a neighbor called them.

Madison was arrested for investigation of first-degree assault and committing a crime against an at-risk adult.

Neighbors say they became concerned after David Madison's wife died this year and they stopped seeing David Madison around.

The younger Madison told police his father wouldn't let him clean the bed.

David Madison was listed in fair condition at Memorial Hospital.
