A disabled woman who died after being found dehydrated and drugged in the back of a van was "tortured" before her death by three individuals tasked with caring for her, prosecutors allege. Attorney General Raúl Torrez discussed the horrifying charges on Thursday during a press conference.  "The abuse and neglect that she endured was horrific and the injuries she sustained are among the worst I have seen in my career as a prosecutor," Torrez said.  "This was torture. There's really no other word for it," Torrez added.
