Mary Kantorowski's oldest son, 71-year-old Peter Kantorowski, says he's concerned about her well-being. When he last saw her eight months ago, she seemed disoriented and was living in poor conditions, he said.
Peter Kantorowski, who owns the house, says his mother has rejected his suggestions to live with him or in a nursing home. A trial is set for March 2.
"I didn't think he would do it," Mary Kantorowski said. "My husband worked hard, difficult jobs to buy this house. He built the garage and did a lot of work on the house and he told me never to leave it."
Her husband, John, died in 1997.
