Nursing Home Worker Charged with Crimes Against Elder Resident

A Baltimore City woman has been indicted on charges of abuse, neglect and assault on an elderly resident at a Timonium care facility.

Shirleen Diane Sheppard, 57, of the 900 block of Argonne Drive, is charged with second-degree abuse of a vulnerable adult, two counts of second-degree neglect, and one count of second-degree assault, online court documents show.
The charges stem from an incident that took place on Oct. 17, 2010 at Stella Maris, Inc. Sheppard was an employee at the time of her arrest.
Sheppard's arraignment is scheduled for Oct. 18 in Baltimore County Circuit Court.
