Williston Police investigators charged 48-year-old Nenita Alfonso Sudeall with neglect of the elderly on Dec. 8. They say the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force found her in Orlando this morning.
Police say Sudeall was the facility administrator for Good Samaritan Retirement Home when she found an elderly resident who had fallen and struck her head outside of the facility around 8 p.m. on Nov. 1. Police say Sudeall took the woman to the lockdown unit without giving her any first aid. The woman was found unresponsive about six hours later and taken to UF Health where she died.
Sudeall is being held on $750,000 bond in Orange County, awaiting transport back to Levy County.
This is the second Good Samaritan Retirement home employee arrested this week.
