The Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that workers at the Itasca nursing home that allowed Sarah Wentworth to wander outside and die in the freezing cold weather could face criminal charges.
According to Dan Rozek, Sun-Times Staff Reporter, a grand jury has been convened in DuPage County to consider charging certain members of the staff of the nursing home with criminal neglect in connection with the death of the eighty-nine year old woman.
The family has already filed a wrongful death civil lawsuit alleging that the nursing home and its staff were negligent in their supervision of the elderly Ms. Wentworth.
