MOOREVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - A Mooreville man is accused of leaving his vulnerable brother out in the sun.

Lee County sheriff’s deputies responded on June 26 to a home in Mooreville where they found a 65-year-old man on a utility trailer with “obvious medical needs,” according to the Lee County Sheriff's Department.

Medics treated the man for dehydration and severe sunburns.

Investigators determined the man, who required constant medical care, had been released from a medical center to a family member for a family outing.

He had been left out in the sun for a substantial amount of time, according to the sheriff's department.

His brother, Charles Clifford, 46, of Mooreville, has been charged with injury to a vulnerable adult.
