Arizona woman accused of abusing adult-care patients

CHANDLER, Ariz. — Authorities say an adult-care provider is accused of
abusing three women in her care at her Chandler home.

Chandler police said 42-year-old Krysta M. Douglas was arrested Thursday on
suspicion of physically and emotionally abusing vulnerable adults.

Court records show Douglas provided care for three adults and helped prepare
them for transport to a day program facility.

One of the females got upset about a hair decoration not being in her hair and
Douglas reportedly became angry.

Co-workers said Douglas yelled upsetting comments at the woman several times and
allegedly shook her.

They said the three adults and two caregivers later got into a van and Douglas
drove recklessly.

One woman hit her head on the van’s window and reportedly was taken to an
urgent care facility to be evaluated.
