A registered nurse was indicated today and charged with second-degree murder of a Chapel Hill nursing home resident, according to a N.C. Department of Justice press release.
Angela Almore of Cary also faces six counts of felony patient abuse related to the provision of morphine for other patients at the Britthaven nursing home at 1716 Legion Road. All were hospitalized. Resident Rachel Holliday, an 84-year-old Alzheimer’s patient, died in February.
Almore is being held in Orange County jail under a $500,000 secured bond. She was charged following an investigation by the Attorney General’s Medicaid Investigations Unit along with the Orange County District Attorney’s Office.
