A Yucaipa-based nursing home is named with three people in a criminal complaint filed by the California Attorney General’s Office alleging elder abuse.
Braswell’s Hampton Manor, Barbara Davis, 44, and Timothy Walker, 56, entered pleas of not guilty at an arraignment on December 22, 2011 in San Bernardino Superior Court.
The nursing home, Davis, Walker and a third person, Amy Nicole Hillrich, are each charged with one felony count of elder abuse causing great bodily injury occurring on Aug. 6, according to court records. The case was filed Dec. 16.
Hillrich, 38, was scheduled for video arraignment Thursday afternoon, according to court personnel. But it was not known if she had been arraigned.
Davis and Walker were released on their own recognizance. They return to court March 12.
In a separate case, Hillrich and David Olvera, 25, and Emilio Pelayo Saldana, 22, face murder charges in the death of Hillrich’s ex-husband, John Hillrich, of Fontana, on Aug. 16 in Ontario.
Hillrich, Olvera and Saldana are being held without bail at West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga, according to the Sheriff’s Department.
