Nurse booked on charges

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

BLOOMFIELD -- A Dexter woman has been booked on charges that stem from stealing pain medication from a patient at the nursing home where she was employed as director of nursing.

Ceceli Shannon Freed, 34, turned herself in to authorities Monday and was charged with stealing a controlled substance. Freed posted bond, which was set at $20,000, and was released.

The charge is the result of an investigation by the Dexter Police Department, which began Feb. 11 after an unattended death was reported at Freed's residence in the 1400 block of Susan Street. An autopsy found that Chad Freed, Ceceli's husband, had "died as a result of mixed drug intoxication."
