GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A woman who entered a plea agreement in the death of an 85-year-old woman who was found in cold weather outside an assisted living center in Gaines Township has received a delayed jail sentence.
A Kent County Circuit Court judge on Tuesday sentenced Denise Filcek to six months in jail, but agreed to delay the jail term for an appeal. She earlier entered a plea to a charge of intentionally placing false information on a chart involving medical records.
Authorities say she was responsible for making bed checks.
Yahira Zamora earlier pleaded no contest to second-degree vulnerable adult abuse and was sentenced to six months in jail.
