SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) -- Authorities say a second person has been charged at a southern Kentucky facility that cares for people with mental and developmental disabilities.
Oakwood employee Cody Burton was arrested on two counts of knowing neglect of a vulnerable adult and one count of failure to report the neglect of a vulnerable adult. Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway announced the arrest Thursday.
Conway says the 21-year-old Burton was arrested Wednesday night at his home by Pulaski County sheriff's deputies.
Earlier this week, Oakwood employee Coty King was charged with provoking two mentally disabled residents to fight. King is accused of videoing the incident on his cellphone. Authorities say Burton is accused of participating in the incident and failing to report it.
Oakwood personnel notified the attorney general's office about the incident.
