STEWARTSTOWN, PA. -- After hearing testimony about the extreme pain suffered by a former Baltimore County woman who died covered with deep bedsores, a Pennsylvania judge ruled yesterday that the case against her son and his wife, who have been charged with first-degree murder in her death, should move to trial. William Donohue, 72, and Frances Donohue, 60, were arrested in March and charged with murder in the May 2004 death of his mother, Bernadette Leiben, 87. At a preliminary hearing yesterday, prosecutors presented evidence showing that Leiben apparently did not receive medical care after she and the Donohues moved from the Jacksonville area of Baltimore County to a farmhouse just over the Pennsylvania border nearly a year before she died.

Neighbors on the quiet, northern Baltimore County road said they worried about the elderly woman who occasionally tottered to the nearby grocery store. Social workers were concerned for Bernadette Leiben, too. Checking on her after she abruptly left a nursing center and returned to the cottage she shared with her son and his wife, they found the home dirty and crowded with pets - and then the family moved abruptly to Pennsylvania and seemed to disappear. A little more than a year later, Leiben was dead at the age of 87, her body covered in bedsores in a room buzzing with flies.
