 Two nurses are charged with felony elder abuse amid allegations they neglected a 77-year-old woman at a Placerville nursing home shortly before she died in 2008.

The Sacramento Bee reports the California attorney general's office filed the charges in the death of Johnnie Esco, who had spent two weeks at the El Dorado Care Center.
Nurses there were supposed to closely monitor Esco because medications left her with chronic constipation. She later died of severe fecal impaction, and doctors also found unexplained bruising.
The center's former director of nursing, Donna Palmer, was arrested Tuesday. A warrant was issued for nurse Rebecca Smith, but El Dorado County jail records did not show that she had been arrested as of Friday.
Prosecutors say both "clearly neglected" their patient, causing her to suffer "unjustifiable pain."
