A jury trial has been scheduled for Dec. 19 at the Callaway County Courthouse at 9 a.m. for Sherry Paulo, the 53-year-old woman who managed Second Chance Homes of Fulton while Carl DeBrodie was a resident.

The 31-year-old DeBrodie was developmentally disabled, and died as the result of alleged abuses, according to court documents. His body was found in April 2017 at a Fulton storage facility stuffed into a garbage bin which was partially covered in concrete.

Paulo was indicted on a felony count of client neglect by "failing to provide the services which were reasonable and necessary to Carl DeBrodie's mental and physical health, which presented an imminent danger to his safety and health." She was also indicted on a felony charge of involuntary manslaughter in the first degree for "recklessly causing the death of Carl DeBrodie by failing to obtain emergency medical services for him while he was suffering a medical emergency in her care."

Paulo also faces a felony charge of abandonment of a corpse for "knowingly disposing of DeBrodie's corpse at a storage unit at 527 South Westminster without properly reporting the location of the body to law enforcement sometime on or between Aug. 1, 2016 and Dec. 31, 2016." Paulo also faced two misdemeanor charges of making a false report of a missing person. The warrant issued for Paulo ordered she be held without bond.

A jury trial has also been scheduled for Dec. 20 at the Callaway County Courthouse starting at 9 a.m. for 34-year-old Mary K. Paulo who was indicted on one misdemeanor charge of making a false report of a missing person. Both women will be under the ruling of Judge Jacob Hasbrouck.

More than a year after his body was found encased in concrete inside of a storage unit, five people were arrested and charged with criminal offenses related to the death of Carl DeBrodie.

Prosecutors made public sealed documents from a grand jury indictment in March in relation to the death and apparently false report of DeBrodie's disappearance. The developmentally disabled man had been reported missing from his independent living facility before was found dead in a storage unit in Fulton.

Below are the others charged in DeBrodie's death. There were no court records as of Wednesday afternoon about the status of the others charged.

  • Anthony R. Flores, 58, of Fulton, also worked at Second Chance Homes of Fulton and was responsible for DeBrodie's care. He was indicted on the same charges as Paulo: one felony charge of client neglect, one felony charge of involuntary manslaughter in the first degree, one felony charge of abandonment of a corpse, and two misdemeanor charges for making a false report of a missing person. The warrant issued for Anthony R. Flores also ordered he be held without bond.
  • Anthony R. K. Flores, 32, of Fulton was indicted on two misdemeanor charges of making a false report of a missing person. He was being held with bond set at $2,000, cash only, per count, for a total of $4,000, cash only.
  • Shaina A. Osborne, 29, of Fulton was indicted on one misdemeanor charge of making a false report of a missing person. The warrant issued for Osborne ordered she be held with a bond set at $3,000, cash only.

The indictments issued by the Callaway County Grand Jury were unsealed after being issued March 30, 2018.
