Guilty Plea in Elder Abuse Case

NEWPORT TOWNSHIP — A woman was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty Wednesday morning to neglect of a care dependent person.

Investigators said Tonya Harlos of Mocanaqua got into a fight with an elderly patient in 2013.

The patient at Guardian Elder Care near Nanticoke said Harlos hurt her arms, smothered her with a pillow, and stole her doll.

Harlos told police she put her hands on the patient’s wrists to prevent the woman from hitting her.
