FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) - A nurse is charged with mistreating a 96-year-old patient at a nursing home in Florence.

Authorities say 27-year-old Lebarbara Deshay Currin of Pulaski, Tennessee, is charged with elder abuse and neglect.

The TimesDaily (https://bit.ly/13BDdk1 ) reports Currin is accusing of physically abusing a 96-year-old woman who lived at Glenwood Nursing Home in Florence.

The abused allegedly occurred in August and was reported to authorities by nursing home officials. A report says the patient had a bruise on her arm and multiple knots on her head.

Florence police say Currin was indicted in August but it took until this month for members of a federal fugitive task force to locate and arrest her. Currin is now free on bond.

Currin is scheduled to enter a plea on Jan. 27.
