Police said they have charged a group home worker in connection with a Mauldin man's death after he was hit while out walking on Monday.
Mauldin police said the pedestrian, 25-year-old Jamie Rosemond, was a resident at the South Carolina Mentor Group Home when he left the residence and was out walking along Ashmore Bridge Road and was hit and killed by a car.
Upon investigation, police said 55-year-old Roderick Grove was the caretaker in charge of Rosemond at the time he was killed. Police said Grove failed to confirm Rosemond's location at the home, falsely documenting that he knew where he was.
Officers said Grove's falsified documents and failure to care for Rosemond led to the charge of neglect of a vulnerable adult resulting in death. He was arrested and is being held on a $20,000 bond.
