Middlesex County Acting Prosecutor Christopher L.C. Kuberiet announced that a grand jury has returned an indictment against Broadway Respite and Home Care, located on Edgeboro Road in East Brunswick, with two counts of abandonment and neglect of a disabled person, and two counts of endangering another person for conduct involving two different victims.
Five employees of the facility, Asia Lunn, 22, Kenitra Hicks, 34, Kieasha Morgan 24, Hugo Lorenzo, 25, and Janella Allen, 31, were indicted for two counts of abandonment and neglect of a disabled person and two counts of endangering another person, for two separate victims, both third degree crimes. Lunn was also indicted for one count of aggravated assault in the third degree.
The defendants were charged as a result of an investigation by the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
During the investigation it was determined that in May 2019, two severely disabled individuals who attended the adult day care were physically abused by employees of Broadway Respite and Home Care.
The indictment alleges the facility failed to act to protect the physical or mental health of the two disabled adult victims.
The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Farrace at (732) 390-6900, or Detective Ankudowicz at (732) 745-5547.
