STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - Sheriff's investigators in Oktibbeha County say a surveillance camera caught a woman abusing someone in her care and that led to her arrest.

Alecia Haney, 36, of Bruce, is charged with felonious infliction of physical pain or injury on a vulnerable person.

She was arrested Friday with the help of the Calhoun County Sheriff's Department.

Lieutenant Brett Watson says Haney was hired to care for a person at a home on Silver Ridge Road.

According to Watson, the camera captured Haney pushing that person, which led to the person suffering a leg injury.

A judge set bond for Haney at $50,000.
