Full details of the charges in the “House of Horrors” murder case can be revealed for the first time.
The development comes nearly a year after Sharon Greenop, 46, was discovered in her bed by police.
The charges suggest Sharon was dead more than two months before she was found.
Her daughter Shayla Greenop, 19, and younger sister Lynette, 39, both deny murdering her at their home in Troon.
One of a total of six charges levied claims Ayr College student Shayla wrote offensive slogans and drew offensive images directed at her mother and said she drew images of a sexual nature on the walls.
Lynette and Shayla, on various occasions between November 11, 2009 and September 8, 2016, allegedly shouted, swore and made offensive remarks at Sharon and at her paid carers.
It is claimed they threw household items at the carers, mistreated Sharon and household pets, committing a breach of the peace.
Between the same dates Lynette is accused of assaulting Sharon, striking her on the head and body and inflicting injuries by means unknown to the prosecutor.
Charge three states between November 11, 2009 and September 8 last year, that Lynette stole money from her sister.
Between September 9 and November 10 last year, following the death of Sharon, both accused allegedly claimed her state benefits in cash from various banks while “knowing that she was dead.”
Both women are accused of concealing Sharon had died in her house by “attempting to clean up her blood deposited there, keeping doors and windows at said address open, burning scented candles and using other means in an attempt to conceal the smell emanating from her decomposing body.” they are said to have prevented callers from seeing her and stating to police checking her welfare that she was “unwell and resting in bed.”
The indictment claims Lynette and Shayla obtained £ 386.88 a week in benefits by fraud. Lynette is also accused of failing to tell the Department of Works and Pensions that Sharon had died and received her Carer’s Allowance of £ 62.10 a week.
The murder charge itself states both women repeatedly struck Sharon on the head and body, compressed her neck, applied pressure to her chest, inflict injuries to her head and body and fail to obtain medical assistance “whereby she was so severely injured that she died and you did murder her.”
It took seven months before Sharon’s body was released to her father and sister Diane so they could finally stage her funeral.
A hearing will take place at the High Court in Glasgow on November 2 and the case is expected to be heard before a jury in February.
