A licensed nurse who was supposed to care for a woman in a vegetative state at an Arizona nursing facility was arrested after she gave birth to a baby last month, officials announced Wednesday.

Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams said at a news conference that 36-year-old Nathan Sutherland was arrested for sexual assault and vulnerable adult abuse at the Hacienda Healthcare facility in Phoenix.


“We have worked virtually nonstop every day, every night to resolve this case,” Williams told reporters.
