Nursing homes improperly sprayed, man indicted

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Alabama exterminator has been indicted after authorities say he mis-applied pesticides at nursing homes across South Georgia.

Steven Murray, who owns Bio-Tech Management in Pelham, Alabama is accused of repeatedly misapplying "Termidor SC" chemicals by spraying it inside nursing homes more than twice a year, contrary to the label instructions.

He's also accused of altering reports to conceal it.

Nursing homes that are affected are in Albany, Dawson, Leesburg, Sylvester, Ashburn Moultrie, Cordele, Tifton, Valdosta, Quitman and Homerville.

If convicted, Murray could get up to 70 years in prison.
