Alleged elder abuse victim "Auntie Em" was a "very keen and alert woman" who was vocal with complaints and would have spoken up if she was given roach-infested food to eat, her son-in-law told a court yesterday.

Patrick Hayward Sr., of Cox's Hill, Pembroke, was giving evidence for the second day in a civil case brought by caregiver Yvonne Dawson against his wife Rosamund, the adopted daughter of 96-year-old Wilhelmina Liburd.

Environmental health officers found that the filthy, cluttered, roach and rodent infested Upland Street home was unfit for human habitation and a social worker deemed Mrs. Liburd at risk of elder abuse.
