Clayton County Attorney Alan Heavens filed a motion to drop charges against two accused of elder abuse and negligence.  The motion involves two nurses, 27-year old Nicole Buckley of Boscobel and 34-year old Heidi Mueller of Fayette.  The Telegraph Herald reports both are accused of denying food, medical care, and medication to a resident at the Elkader Care Center.  The motion states that the Iowa Board of Nursing and Department of Inspections and Appeals is reviewing the allegations, which would allow those actions to move forward and then determine if charges should be re-filed.
