Nursing Home Patient Beats Roommate To Death

A nursing home patient is dead after his roommate beat him. The patient was found on the floor with wounds to his face. He was taken to the hospital due to the injuries sustained. He died just three weeks later. The patient committing the crime was previously in a behavioral unit prior to moving to the nursing home facility. 

Authorities blame the nursing home for allowing the patient that attacked his roommate to reside in the facility. They say he should have been in a much more locked down facility due to a history of violence, coupled with his dementia. For more, read the story.
