The Ohio Attorney General's office is announcing indictments against a Zanesville nursing home and its owner.

Attorney General Mike DeWine announced a 16-count indictment against Autumn Healthcare of Zanesville.

Owner, Steve Hitchens, faces 39 charges, including theft by deception and medicaid fraud.

Last year, the Attorney General said care at the nursing home was so poor, it could result in criminal charges.
