BALTIMORE - Bail was denied yesterday to a Kenyan woman, who was extradited to Baltimore earlier this month to face charges of abusing an elderly man in 2007.
Baltimore City Circuit Court Judge Lynn Stewart denied bail to Anastacia Oluoch. The 59-year-old former caretaker originally posted $5,000 bail when charged five years ago, but then fled to her home country. Last year, Oluoch was arrested by Kenyan police as part of a joint Interpol-Baltimore Police Department effort. She flown to Dulles Airport on August 22 and then transported by police to Baltimore.
She faces four counts reckless endangerment, four counts of assault and four counts of abuse of a vulnerable adult in the beating of John Taylor. Taylor’s family captured four alleged assaults on video surveillance installed in a nursing home where he lived.
