Woman charged with abusing men at veterans home

 A woman has been charged with abusing four residents at a home for veterans in Montana, including three in a ward for people with dementia.
Susan Stablefeldt did not enter a plea when she was arraigned on Tuesday in District Court in Glendive. County officials said Thursday she does not yet have an attorney, and no phone listing could be found for her.
Authorities said the incidents occurred at the Eastern Montana Veteran's Home in Glendive between October and January.
Nursing Home Director Christy Kemp called police on Jan. 29 and told them she had received several complaints.
Co-workers told investigators that one man was held down with a knee on his arm and a hand across his face while being told to shut up. Court records allege Stablefeldt twisted one man's arm behind his back, punched another and slapped a fourth.
