SOMERSET, Ky. (AP) — A man accused of provoking a fight between mentally disabled patients at Oakwood has entered a guilty plea.

The Commonwealth Journal (http://bit.ly/1jq9eik) reports 22-year-old Coty King of Pine Knot entered the plea on Monday in Pulaski Circuit Court to two counts of abusing or neglecting an adult.

Prosecutors said King, who worked at the facility in Somerset, provoked one patient to hit another and recorded the incident on his cell phone.

Another man indicted in the incident, Cody Burton of Burnside, pleaded guilty in March to one count of abusing or neglecting an adult.

Neither man is still employed at Oakwood.
