On March 22, 32 year-old Maximo Hong Fajardo Jr. allegedly smothered nursing home resident, 87-year-old Barbara McIver, in full view of other residents and staff using a pillow. Fajardo worked as a certified nursing assistant since 1999; he had worked only 2 weeks at Convalescent Center Mission Street prior to the incident.
Employees alerted police to the killing around 10 a.m., shortly after the suspect fled the home. Bystanders then chased him down and held him for police. He plead not guilty on March 24 and is being held on $10 million bail.
