Federal authorities are investigating a St. Albans in-home health-care company that tried to buy the Kanawha-Charleston Health Department's home-health division.

They are alleging widespread fraud and the improper use of dangerous felons as in-home caregivers.

The U.S. Attorney's Office has asked a federal judge to bar Golden Heart In Home Care, LLC, from conducting business and freeze all of its assets.

Principal parties connected to Golden Heart have Clay county connections, including Jimmy Jamie, who made Parade magazine for his $2.2 million salary.

Six of the in-home care providers - known as "homemakers" - were convicted felons.
