A woman received 12 months of probation after pleading guilty to a felony charge of failing to provide care for an impaired person in connection with the death of her husband in what police called “deplorable conditions” at their Onandago Trail home in Springfield Township, authorities said Wednesday.

Dorothy Marie “Dottie” Matwiju, 57, pleaded guilty to the fourth-degree felony last week in Summit County Common Pleas Judge Lynne Callahan’s court.
He was dead at the scene, according to an autopsy report. Police said that Matwiju (pronounced Mah-TWEE-yoo) weighed 84 pounds.

Case records show his last driver’s license listed him as 6 feet tall, 190 pounds.
