A third woman who was working at a Boardman nursing home when a patient died is scheduled to enter a plea this week to charges filed in connection with that death.

According to online records, 52-year-old Beth Bowman, of Wellsville is to appear in court Thursday afternoon.

Bowman was charged with patient abuse and tampering with records two days after the death of 72-year-old William Wolfe, who was being cared for at Greenbriar Health Center in Boardman.

Wolfe's family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the operator of the Greenbriar Health Care Center, claiming that several employees of the center contributed to the death of Wolfe, who was admitted on March 28, 2015.

The lawsuit claims that on June 29, 2015, employees gave Wolfe a dose of extended-release morphine that was not prescribed to him, and that Wolfe's family was not notified of the medical error.

Wolfe was found the next morning unresponsive and was taken to St. Elizabeth's Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

That civil suit has since been settled for $1 million according to probate court records.

Two other employees implicated in the criminal investigation have been convicted on reduced charges.

Brenda Lamancusa, 41, of Girard, had been charged with one count of patient abuse

In December, Lamancusa was fined $100 after pleading no contest to a reduced charge of attempted failure to report a crime.

On Tuesday of this week, Johonna Hull of Canfield appeared in Boardman Curt on her 30th birthday and pleaded no contest to a reduced charge of patient abuse.

A judge found her guilty and in addition to dismissing a charge of records tampering, he fined Hull $100 and placed her on probation for sixty days.
