Bond for man accused in Andover abuse

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A 40-year-old man accused of mistreating an adult at an Andover nursing home has been released on bond but ordered to stay in Kansas while the case continues.

Geofrey Nyangweso is charged with mistreating the adult at the Victoria Falls Skilled Nursing Home. Nyangweso was ordered Monday to surrender his passport and stay in Kansas. He was released then on $50,000 bond.

The Kansas Department for Aging and Disability Services said last month it had cited Victoria Falls for failing to meet certain regulations and failing to investigate some abuse complaints.

A department inspection showed at least two of the 63 residents suffered verbal and physical abuse, including one targeted by at least four staff members and another who had been abused by another resident.
