A 49-year-old Omaha woman has been arrested, accused of letting her grandmother live in deplorable conditions. Authorities have removed 95-year-old Hilda Pippitt from her home. The house reeked of feces, and the food in the refrigerator was moldy.

The woman's granddaughter, Christy Vest, faces two counts of abusing a vulnerable adult. No public phone listing for Vest could be found.

Court records say Vest waived a hearing in county court on Wednesday and that the case was forwarded to district court for possible trial.
