    A support group for the elderly says the tragic death of a Levin woman highlights an increase in elder abuse in the town


    A 90-year-old woman has died nearly a month after three teenagers are alleged to have assaulted her in her home.

    A homicide investigation has been launched.

    Age Concern spokesman Dan Gerarghty says reported abuse cases are on the up.

    He says they're dealing with 40 to 50 cases of elder abuse a year - and receive between 90 and 100 reports of concern.

    Three young women charged over the attack remain before the courts.
