FRUITLAND, Md. (AP) - Maryland State Police have arrested a caregiver in connection to the death of a woman she was caring for.

Police say 44-year-old Becky Long has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder, assault, manslaughter, reckless endangerment and abuse of a vulnerable adult in connection to the death of 56-year-old Mary Bonniwell.
