Fletcher woman charged with child neglect, victim remains hospitalized

FLETCHER, OK (KSWO)- A Fletcher woman is facing child neglect charges after a medical emergency revealed unsanitary conditions. Margo Rae Zill is charged with felony child neglect.

On October 14th, Fletcher Police and Fire departments, as well as the Apache Ambulance service, responded to a medical emergency on HWY 277. When they arrived, they found a bedridden minor covered in urine and feces. According to those on the scene, the bed, box spring, and the area surrounding the bed was covered in old and fresh feces.

When EMTs attempted to move the teen to the gurney for transport, she was stuck to the bed. Her skin started to peel off as she was removed from the bed. Despite dried and fresh feces covering the victim’s body, EMTs were able to identify large lacerations to her back and buttocks.

Officials from the Department of Human Services later confirmed that the victim had wounds all over her body and part of her gluteus maximus was missing. After the wounds were cleaned, one laceration was found to 15 inches wide, 7 inches deep, and covered in cockroach eggs.

The victim was admitted to the hospital in critical condition caused by what doctors believe to be neglect and failure to obtain medical attention. She was later transported to an Oklahoma City hospital due to the severity of her injuries.

Zill admitted to neglecting the victim on October 22nd. She also told police that it was the victim’s responsibility to clean her colostomy bag.

Zill has already bonded out of jail on a $50,000 bond. If convicted she faces fines between $500 and $5,000 and/or 1 year to life in prison. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 20th.
