TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) -

Three women charged in the death of a woman in their care are in court Wednesday. 

Toledo police say Barbara Bell, Tasha Pittman and Sherria Allison  served 48-year-old Brenda Firsdon cubed potatoes when they had strict instructions to puree Firsdon's food. 

Firsdon choked on the potatoes and died due to her many medical conditions. 

Allison and Pittman were released on bond. Bell's case will be continued until next month. She has until July 5, 1 P.M. to get an attorney.

Firsdon's sister has been fighting since September to make sure the women are held responsible for the death.
