The body of Timmie Jordan was found on a bed in a spare bedroom at the mother's home in late March. Police were called to investigate a report of nuisance cats.The indictment alleged that Jordan concealed her mother's death so she could receive her Social Security and military survivor's benefit. She faces up to 15 years in prison.
Local media in Florida reported that Jordan, 61, told police her mom died of old age. An autopsy found no signs of foul play.
