A Campton Hills caregiver has been accused of abusing an elderly woman and man, according to a statement released by Kane County grand jury.
Initial reports say that the accused, identified as 51-year-old Oyunaa Jargel, was charged with aggravated battery and criminal abuse or neglect. Jargel allegedly shoved an 80-year-old man in his chest and pulled out a feeding tube from a 77-year-old woman, causing a liquid to spray on the elderly woman’s face.
