A Chatsworth woman was arrested on suspicion of elder abuse after authorities found her 85-year-old mother, who later died, covered head to toe in her own waste, a Los Angeles police spokeswoman said Sunday.

Belinda Feldman, 54, was arrested at the home she shared with her mother. Elise Glatstein died 11 hours after authorities took her to a hospital.

Police went to the house in the 21900 block of Dupont Street on Saturday after receiving a call about Glatstein.

Officers found her in her bedroom in "very poor condition," Officer Karen Smith of the Los Angeles Police Department said. Glatstein appeared to have been left in her own urine and feces for an extended period, Smith said.

Smith said there were no signs of physical violence.

County coroner's officials said the cause of death had not been determined.

Feldman was released on $50,000 bail.
