Deschutes County, Ore. — A former nurse from Sky Lakes Medical Center has been charged with murder in Deschutes County.
45-year-old Angela Judd is accused of smothering her 92-year-old grandmother Nada Bodholdt to death with a pillow on New Year’s Eve. Prosecutors say Judd told a counselor about the incident in late January. The counselor then reported the elder abuse to authorities.
Judd’s employment with Sky Lakes ended Monday.
