CHANDLER, AZ – A man in Arizona has been arrested after he allegedly slit his 89-year-old grandmother’s throat because he was tired of caring for her.

Early Sunday morning, 30-year-old Brandon Smith called 911 to report his grandmother was not breathing and looked like she had been beaten up.

When officers arrived at the apartment Smith shared with his grandmother, they found 89-year-old Helen Smith stabbed to death inside a bathroom.

Brandon had already left the scene before police arrived but was taken into custody shortly afterward. According to police (and his booking photo), Brandon was under the influence of drugs and\or alcohol.

Not wanting his grandmother to live like this anymore, Brandon told police he decided to end her suffering.…

JEFFERSON, GA — Three women have been charged after they posted a Snapchat video of an elderly woman suffering a stroke at the senior living facility where they worked.

The women — Jorden Bruce, 21; Mya Moss, 21; and Lizeth Ramirez, 19 — worked at the Bentley Senior Living Facility in Jefferson.

On June 13, an 76-year-old woman at the facility suffered a stroke so a hospice nurse was notified.

It was going to take a little time before the nurse arrived, so the three women were to closely monitor the patient.

Instead, one of them decided this was a perfect time to ignore the poor lady and post a video to Snapchat while in the patient’s room.

“One of them was smoking a vape pen. They were using profanities and (making obscene hand gestures) at the camera,” a Jefferson Police Department detective said.

The person who posted the video to Snapchat titled it “The End,” police say.

Another employee saw the video online and contacted police.

All three women were arrested and have been charged with exploiting an elderly and disabled person.…

PASCO COUNTY, FL — A 51-year-old nursing assistant in Florida has been accused of molesting an elderly disabled woman with a shower head.

Christina Nappo was caring for an elderly disabled woman with the mental capacities of a 10-year-old after suffering serious brain trauma.

According to the arrest report, Nappo was instructing another CNA how to clean the woman and used “a shower head to stimulate the vaginal area with water pressure until the victim was heard moaning.”

Nappo allegedly told the other CNA she was showing her how to do it right for the times she was not around.

While technically two adults, police say that Nappo knew the victim well enough to know that the woman’s limited mental faculties would have left her without the ability to give consent.

Nappo was charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of an elderly person. She was booked into the Land O’ Lakes jail and bonded out a few hours afterward.

If convicted, Nappo is looking at a possible 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine.…

Split DogNAPA, CA – An elderly man is claiming he was left with a mutilated penis after doctors ignored multiple requests by nurses and family to remove an eroding catheter.

On July 21st 2013, a nurse at Napa Valley Care Center was caring for Rupert Collins and noticed his Foley catheter had irritated his penis causing it to swell, turn red and tear at his urethra. The nurse sent a fax to Collins’ insurer, Kaiser, explaining the situation and asking to try a no catheter trial period “to give the area a rest.”

According to the lawsuit Collins has filed against Kaiser, the request was denied and Collins was never examined or followed up on by a doctor from Kaiser. Two days later on July 23rd, a conference was requested by Napa Valley Care Center to discuss the care of Mr. Collins, but a representative from Kaiser did not show.

“As a direct result of Kaiser’s failure to participate, there was no meaningful communication or ongoing assessment and the dire need to remove the catheter from Rupert’s eroding penis continued to be ignored,” the complaint states.…
