A mentally ill woman who set a fire that killed 16 fellow patients at a Connecticut nursing home in 2003 is being transferred to a Rhode Island care center to be treated for multiple sclerosis. A state judge approved the transfer of Leslie Andino, 33, Monday. She will be moved from Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown to the Berkshire Place Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Providence. Andino’s public defender, John Stawicki, said that she can no longer walk and needs around-the-clock care and that the Rhode Island nursing home is better equipped to care for her.
