Prosecutors drop some charges in Florida nursing home deaths | app


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors on Thursday dropped manslaughter charges against three nurses present when 12 patients at a nursing home suffered fatal overheating five years ago after Hurricane Irma turned off the power to their facility’s air conditioning.

The Broward County District Attorney’s Office dismissed charges against Althia Meggie, Sergo Colin and Tamika Miller, but not Jorge Carballo, the house administrator. He is still due to stand trial next month and prosecutors said Meggie, Colin and Miller will testify against him.
