Georgia woman indicted in 2017 death at unlicensed care home
AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) — Authorities say a man was found dead at an unlicensed personal care home in Georgia and that a woman accused of operating the home has been indicted on murder and neglect charges.
News outlets report that 58-year-old Beverly Webb was indicted Tuesday by a Richmond County grand jury in the man’s 2017 death.
A statement from the county’s Crimes Against the Vulnerable and Elderly task force says the man required 24-hour supervised care, and investigator William Loomer determined that Webb had moved him from a licensed facility to the unlicensed home in Augusta without his family’s knowledge. He was found dead 15 days later after overdosing on his prescribed medication.
Webb is accused of leaving the man without supervision. It’s unclear if she has a lawyer who could comment.
