Two women are now behind bars after Southside police say they admitted to intentionally over medicating a hospice patient. Caroline Burton and Brooke Ragsdale are both charged with first degree assault. Burton and Ragsdale worked at Woodland Place Assisted Living in Southside.
The patient was then taken to a local hospital where lab work was done before she died. Burton and Ragsdale are being held in the Etowah County Jail on $50,000 bond each.
