A mother and son in Madison, Wis., have been charged with first-degree reckless homicide and hiding a corpse after allegedly failing to help a 70-year-old female relative after she fell in 2009, and then hiding her body after she died two days later, according to a story on Madison.com.

The mother and son decided there was nothing they could do after the woman died, and went out for pizza according to the criminal complaint filed this week. Police found the woman's mummified remains in the basement of the home more than three months later.
