Nursing Home Employee Charged With Murdering 83-Year-Old Resident

A former nursing home employee is facing murder charges for her connection to the death of a nursing home resident in April 2009. The 37-year-old woman was arrested on Tuesday on murder charges stemming from the death of the resident who was improperly injected with insulin.

Investigators allege that she gave an 83-year-old nursing home resident a shot of insulin causing the resident to fall into an insulin induced coma. The resident was not diabetic and had not been prescribed insulin. The woman then used the resident’s credit card for ten days and continued to use it even after the resident had died. She faces twenty years to life if found guilty of second degree murder. For more, read the story.
