Jones Co. nursing home aides charged with elder abuse

Two Jones County nursing home aides are accused of threatening and striking an 89-year-old man.

Maj. Earl Humphries of the Jones County Sheriff's Office says it happened at the Lynn Haven Nursing Home on Monticello Highway. He says the two were caught after the man's family put a video camera in the room.

He says Vonshell Napier faces four counts of cruelty to a person over 65 and Beverly Jackson one count.

Humphries said the camera in the room captured what he called both "physical and mental abuse."

He said the pair punched the man, hit him in the head and threatened to beat him again.
