No Charges Filed Against Nursing Home Resident After Killing Woman During Fight

The elderly man accused of killing a woman during a fight at a Buffalo nursing home, will not face any criminal charges.

The acting Erie County district attorney says an investigation found that the man doesn’t have the mental capacity for criminal intent.

Police say Ruth Murray, 83, accidentally walked into the room of another patient at the Emerald South Nursing Home in August. A fight broke out, and Murray died. She was an Alzheimer’s patient.
