• Jean Danvers pleads guilty

    Almost two years after the crime, Jean Danvers, age 65 and a resident of Pacific Grove, pled guilty to voluntary manslaughter, elder abuse, and two counts of felony assault in connection with the death of her mother, Charlotte Danvers.

    Jean Danvers was the sole caretaker of her 96-year-old mother in 2009. On September 24, 2009, police were dispatched to the family home in Pacific Grove and found Charlotte Danvers unconscious and badly bruised and bleeding. Jean Danvers confessed to police that she “battered her mother.” Charlotte Danvers died two hours later at CHOMP.

    The autopsy report stated that she died from sepsis, a toxic condition resulting from her numerous open wounds. She also suffered from broken ribs, a broken nose, and dehydration.

    Judge Adrienne M. Grover will sentence Jean Danvers on October 11, 2011. She will serve 14 years in prison.
