The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services this week revoked the license of a Tarboro assisted living facility where a resident was strangled earlier this year.
Trenneth Axel Pace, 60, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Rebecca Eudy, who was found dead at Open Fields Assisted Living, at 3210 Western Blvd. in April, according to WRAL.
According to her death certificate, Eudy had been asphyxiated and suffered traumatic injuries to her neck from manual strangulation.
According to documents dated July 17, the DHHS determined that Open Fields Assisted Living failed to comply with licensure rules and regulations.
The document shows that an investigation into the facility found violations in facility management, personal care and supervision of residents', resident’s rights, medication orders, nutrition and food service and personal care and other staffing.
