Former Caregiver Charged with Reckless Homicide
A former caregiver at a Medicaid-funded facility was charged with one count of reckless homicide by a Graves County jury. Alan Warner was caring for a resident at a Community Alternatives facility in Hickory, Kentucky when he allegedly failed to follow his training and improperly treated a resident who lost consciousness, eventually resulting in the resident’s death.
The indictment is the result of an investigation initiated by the State’s Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control Unit and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway. The 53 year old Warner was arraigned on May 12 in Graves County Circuit Court. If convicted, Warner faces up to five years in prison.
