CINCINNATI (AP) — A prosecutor says a nurse's aide has been charged with raping a 92-year-old woman at a suburban Cincinnati nursing home.
Hamilton County Prosecutor Joseph Deters says 22-year-old Samuel Onyenweaku was indicted Thursday in Cincinnati on charges of rape, felonious assault and patient abuse. Deters say the West Chester man could face more than 19 years in prison if convicted of all charges.
Deters says the aide was fired and has been in jail since his arrest Nov. 26. A defense attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.
The aide is charged with the Nov. 24 rape of a patient at a nursing home in Deer Park. The patient was taken to a hospital for treatment and later released to the care of a hospice.
