The Star Press reports that Bell was released from the Henry County Jail after posting bond.

Prosecutors allege that over the course of six days in November she allegedly failed to inject an 84-year-old patient at Hickory Creek nursing home with medication to combat deep vein thrombosis.

The woman was hospitalized Nov. 16 with a swollen lower left leg. She died Dec. 6 after being transferred to hospice care due to her deteriorating condition.
