Woman Charged with Beating 90-Year-Old Nursing Home Resident to be Extradited from Kenya

Police have made plans to extradite to the U.S. a woman depicted in a video allegedly abusing an elderly man from her home country of Kenya. A Police spokesman says the 59-year-old Kenyan woman is being flown from Nairobi overnight to Du International Airport Thursday afternoon.

Police say the woman fled the country in 2007 after being charged with assault and abuse of a vulnerable adult in the beating of a 90-year-old man. The alleged assault occurred in the man's nursing home and was captured on video surveillance installed by the victim's daughter.

Police say the FBI had been in contact with Kenyan authorities for years trying to get the woman arrested and extradited. She was successfully arrested in Kenya in 2011 and will be extradited next week. For more, read the story.
