There, they found the accused man's mother living in a non-insulated garage of the home. She was in medical distress and taken to hospital by paramedics. Police says she is currently in "life-threatening condition."

They say the woman was not being provided with adequate food. While a portable toilet had been provided to her, the conditions in the garage were said to be terrible.

Police say the woman is the mother of the man charged. They allege she was moved into the non-insulated garage of the house by her son and daughter-in-law in early November, 2010.
