A Nursing Home in Indiana Faces a Lawsuit From the Family of a Slain Woman

The family of an 80-year-old woman who was raped and murdered at an Indianapolis nursing home alleges in a lawsuit that her death was the “inevitable result” of poor staffing and “horrendous” conditions at the nursing home.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in Marion County by Patricia Newnum’s husband and daughter accuses Homestead Healthcare Center’s operator, CommuniCare Inc., of wrongful death, pre-death loss of consortium, and negligent and intentional infliction of emotional distress, The Indianapolis Star reported.

The suit also names the home’s owner, Adams County Memorial Hospital, as defendant. It alleges that Newnum’s rape and murder was “the tragic culmination of constant, horrendous conditions and conduct” at the nursing home on Indianapolis’ south side.
