Catalina Ferchiu, 54, of Pool Close, Rugby, who was a senior nurse manager at the care home, has today Tuesday 12 February 12 been charged with ill treatment or wilful neglect of an individual.

Police said the 87-year-old woman was taken to hospital with her injuries on February 2 last year - she died on the 23 of the same month.
