A Pennsylvania woman died last year from bedbug bite complications. The insects had invaded the care facility where she was housed.

Now, the woman's 72-year-old caretaker Deborah Butler faces felony charges including involuntary manslaughter and neglect of care.

Last February, West Manheim Township Police entered the southern Pennsylvania home and noticed the bed bugs. They crawled on walls and along ledges. They scurried on the bed sheets and pillow where an elderly woman slept in a first-floor room. She told officers she was blind, but could "feel them crawling." Sometimes, she added, they bit her, too.

Paramedics, police said, would later check on that woman, but did not notice any visible injuries. Police said another woman, 96-year-old Mary Stoner, was staying at the home. Two weeks after the visit, Stoner was dead.

An autopsy determined her cause of death was from "complications of sepsis followed by bed bug infestation," according to charging documents.

Stoner's family moved her out of Butler's home on Feb. 3, 2016, after noticing her health worsen. During previous visits, Stoner's family told police she was in good health. On Feb. 6, Stoner was brought to the emergency room, where doctors found sores on her skin. Staff members were under the opinion the woman's infection was a result of bed bug bites.

Stoner was discharged from the hospital about a week later, only to be readmitted again. Doctors said she had pneumonia.

She died a week later.

The women, police said, stayed with Butler at her home. Butler provided food, shelter, clothing as well as personal and health care. Both women paid for the care services, documents state.

In talking with police prior to Stoner's death, Butler told them she had been trying to get rid of the bed bugs since September 2015 and had used store-bought supplies. She said she could not afford an exterminator and blamed Stoner for bringing in the bugs, documents state.

Butler, who was charged last week, had taken Stoner to her family doctor in January because Stoner had been scratching her neck and been sick. Butler did not mention bed bugs during the doctor's appointment, police said, and Stoner didn't mention them either.

In the coming weeks, Butler said she noticed no change in Stoner's condition. But police said "evidence later indicated that the victim's condition would have been clearly visible and obvious that serious medical attention was required."

Stoner received no further medical treatment until her family took her to York Hospital. In the week after Stoner's death, police said they searched Butler's home and found bed bugs in various stages of their life cycle.

Last February, West Manheim Township Police entered a home on Baltimore Pike and one of the first things they noticed were the bed bugs.

The pests were seen on walls and along ledges. They scurried on the bed sheets andpillow where an elderly woman slept in a first floor room. That woman, police said, told officers she was blind, but could "feel them crawling."

Sometimes, she said, the bugs bit her, too.

EMS would later check on that woman, but did not notice any visible injuries, police said.

But, according to police, there was a second woman who was living at the home, too. Both had been staying there under the care of the home's owner, Deborah Butler, who had previously run a licensed home care facility, Luckenbaugh Personal Care Home.

Butler, 72, closed that business a few years ago, and the women had stayed with her at her own home, police said. Butler provided food, shelter, clothing as well as personal and health care. Both women paid for the care services, documents state.

Two weeks after police visited Butler's house for the first time, that second woman, Mary Stoner, 96, died at York Hospital. An autopsy determined that her cause of death was from "complications of sepsis following a bed bug infestation," according to charging documents.

Despite lawsuits, police chief remains on duty

Felony charges were filed against Butler earlier this week. She faces neglect of care, a first-degree felony, as well as involuntary manslaughter, a misdemeanor.

According to police, Stoner was brought to the emergency room at York Hospital on Feb. 6, 2016. She had sores on her skin and staff there was under the opinion that Stoner's infection was a result of bed bug bites, police said.

Stoner's family moved her out of Butler's home on Feb. 3 after noticing her health worsen. During previous visits, family told police Stoner was in good health.

Stoner was discharged from the hospital about a week later, only to be readmitted again. Doctors said she had pneumonia.

A week later she died.

In talking with police prior to Stoner's death, Butler told them she had been trying to get rid of the bed bugs since September 2015 and had used store-bought supplies. She said she could not afford an exterminator and blamed Stoner for bringing in the bugs, documents state.

Butler had taken Stoner to her family doctor in January because Stoner had been scratching her neck and been sick. Butler did not mention bed bugs during the doctor's appointment, police said, and Stoner didn't mention them either.

In the coming weeks, Butler said she noticed no change in Stoner's condition. But police said "evidence later indicated that the victim's condition would have been clearly visible and obvious that serious medical attention was required."

Stoner received no further medical treatment until her family took her to York Hospital in February.

In the week after Stoner's death, police executed a search warrant of Butler's home. York County Forensic Team collected evidence and photographed the home, documents state.

Bed bugs were seen in various stages of their life cycle, police wrote in charging documents.

Butler appeared for a preliminary arraignment on Thursday before District Judge James S. Miner. Unsecured bail was set at $50,000, meaning she was free to go. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled March 9.

Attempts to reach Butler were unsuccessful Friday night.

Pennsylvania Department of Human Services annual reports on personal care homes show no violations at Luckenbaugh Personal Care Home between 2008-2011, the only years for which reports that list individual homes' violations are online.

FORT SMITH (KFSM)- For those with children in the Booneville School District, many may be wondering what to do next if they suspect their home is infested with bed bugs.

The pests can hide in even the smallest places and bed bugs have become more common in the state of Arkansas in recent years. Exterminators said many cases are due to recent travel.

"[Bed bugs] are hitchhikers," Terminator Termite & Pest owner, Doug Grimm said. "So, anywhere where people are staying for prolonged periods of time or people congregating in large numbers, that's where you'll find bed bugs."

The pests start out with just a few bugs.

"Bed bugs are visible to the naked eye," Grimm said. "If you've got one or two bugs, they're really good at hiding, so it's gonna be awhile before you actually know that you have an infestation."

Treating bed bugs is not a do-it-yourself project. Once a building or home is infested, the extermination process could cost you more than $500.

"Bed bugs will not go away on their own," Grimm said. "Some of the over the counter stuff you see doesn't work effectively. You have to eradicate every single male and female bed bug before you have it under control."

One of the most common misconceptions is that having bed bugs is hygiene-related. Exterminators said that's not the case.

"Any one of us can get bed bugs," Grimm said. "Don't be embarrassed, just make sure you get the problem taken care of as soon as possible."

In the Booneville School District case, getting back to normal might take awhile.

"In a school setting, it's a lot more difficult," Grimm said. "We'd have to do it after hours. It's just an exhaustive process; you have to get every crack and crevice where bed bugs hide."

While bed bugs do bite, they do not carry or transmit disease. Exterminators said some people react to those bites, while others show no symptoms.

Anacostia-based Savoy Elementary School closed Monday because the school was too infested with bed bugs and other pests.

D.C. Public Schools announced Friday that the shut down, slated for Monday and Tuesday, was impending because the building needs a thorough cleaning,The Washington Post reports.

For now, students at Savoy will be relocated to Ferebee Hope Elementary School beginning Wednesday. Officials will be providing transportation between the school locations.

Savoy Chancellor Antwan Wilson assured parents that staff would be replacing all blankets, rugs, pillows, etc., and also said that once the school is cleaned, health officials will examine the building to make sure its up to snuff.

In late January, Fox 5 reported that parents at the school were absolutely enraged at the deplorable conditions their children were forced to learn in. Parents added that professional bug exterminators had already been brought to the school without much success.

One parent wasnt even aware of the bed bug infestation until they saw it reported on Fox 5.

This is not how you should notify parents of rats and bed bugs. I had to see it on the news. Then, the school doesnt notify the parents until 4 days later, the parent said.

Before the school said it was temporarily shutting down, Aaron Doughty, another parent, said he would not let his bed bug-bitten kids back to Savoy until officials take the problem seriously.

They wont be back because they have several bites on them and Im very concerned about the situation, Doughty said. I will not be sending them to school.

According to Doughty, who showed pictures of the bites on his daughters, the problem started appearing around Christmas and has since only escalated. Doughty added that the school nurse told him months ago the school was infested with bed bugs.

But its now in February that officials have finally decided the school needs to close temporarily.

Former First Lady Michelle Obama visited the school in 2013 andtold students that they wereblessed to have this school and also that no one is born smart.

Parents say health and school administrators were on site at Savoy Elementary School but they gave no solutions on how to stop the pest problem at the school.

WASHINGTON - An emergency meeting about a reported bed bug, rodent infestation at a southeast elementary school provided few answers for outraged parents Thursday night.

Parents say health and school administrators were on site at Savoy Elementary School but they gave no solutions on how to stop the pest problem at the school.

The Department of Health was also at the school Thursday evening to tell parents about kits they can pick up to determine if they have bed bugs.

DC Public Schools and Department of General Services were there to share what's been done to ease the issue. Parents say what was missing was a clear solution on how to address the problem moving forward. If this would have happened on Wisconsin Avenue, the school would be closed, said Aaron Doughty, a father to students at the school.

Doughty shared photos of what he says are bed bug bites on his two daughters who attend Savoy, and he was hoping the meeting at the school Thursday night would help provide some answers.

No solutions out of this meeting and my daughters have not been in school, I have a note for them and they're scheduled to return back to school on Monday but I want solutions before they come back because you've seen the pictures, Doughty said.

PREVIOUS: DC elementary school undergoing treatment for bed bugs

Doughty was one of many who say the school has been infested with bedbugs since November and complaints were ignored.

I was aware of the issue in December but the principal was nonchalant about it, said Commissioner Rhonda Hines.

One thing the parents are saying is this school should be closed. The students and staff should be moved out into a facility until they resolve this problem and I agree. It's a very unhealthy environment for teachers or students or any other staff to be working in, said Elizabeth Davis, President of the Washington Teachers Union.

Savoy's Principal Donyale Butler attended the emotionally charged meeting but avoided questions from the crowd and media.
