Most people would have a hazy notion of what workers in a home for developmentally disabled adults do. Help the residents with everyday tasks, perhaps. But arranging fights among them and videoing the results would likely be missing from the list.

But that's exactly what prosecutors allege happened at the Independent Group Home Living facility in the tony Hamptons on New York's Long Island, according to a WCBS-TV report. The claim is that four workers encouraged one resident to attack another one. Erin McHenry, Justin McDonald, Stephen Komara, Rosemary Vanni now face felony charges.
