Exterminator admits to endangering seniors

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Alabama exterminator admits he illegally used dangerous pesticides in south Georgia nursing homes.

54 year-old Steven Murray and his company Bio-Tech Management pleaded guilty to conspiracy, unlawful use of pesticides, false statements, and mail fraud.

Murray provided monthly pest control for nursing homes in Albany, Leesburg, Dawson, Sylvester, Ashburn, Moultrie, Cordele, Tifton, Valdosta, Quitman, Bainbridge, and Homerville.

Federal prosecutors say from 2005 to 2009 the company sprayed a chemical, meant only for outdoor use, inside those nursing homes and altered company service reports.

Prosecutors did not say when he'll be sentenced.
