More than a dozen witnesses coming forward in case of abuse

POWELL COUNTY, KY (WAVE) - More witnesses have come forward in the case against a Kentucky woman accused of abusing an adult who is mentally challenged.

Ruby Richardson turned herself in last month after Powell County Sheriff's Deputies say she spent two weeks on the run.

The victim told police that Richardson allegedly beat her, stole from her and fed her dog food.

Two additional witnesses have now come forward in the case, bringing the total of witnesses to more than a dozen.
