Ridiculous electricity bill

My parents moved into a home(july 2007) sold to them by a deceased friends son and my mother had called the electricity company to inform them to switch the electricity and whatnot, and the ladys son was supposed to infor them she was deceased. They continued to send bills and the ladys name and of course she never opened them and never receieved a bill in her name untill november 2008. What the company did was just slap on the charges from the whole time and put it on her bill which ended up becoming close to $5,000. How does a company even let a bill go that far without shutting off the service and what can my mother do?
