State police at Reading said Thursday that they have filed criminal charges against a caregiver who neglected a disabled 57-year-old man.
The investigation of Diana Shook, 43, of Kutztown, began after the man was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital on July 5, police said. They said he had life-threatening injuries and signs of neglect.
Shook was being paid to take care of the man, police said. She was arrested Thursday at her home on a charge of neglect of care for a dependent person.
