CHARLESTON -- A woman is suing Sun Healthcare Group after she claims they overmedicated her mother while she was a resident.

In August 2009, Chloe Anderson was admitted to the defendants' care, where she remained as a resident until October 2010, according to a complaint filed May 27 in Kanawha Circuit Court.
