Who is Marilyn Latish McKey?

Police said Marilyn Latish McKey, 35, and Taneshia Deshawn Jordan, 28, were arrested in October 2019, following a report in June of that year of elder abuse at the Danby House in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. North.

McKey pleaded guilty to two counts of assault on a disabled person and Jordan pleaded guilty to one count of assault on a disabled person, the Forsyth County Clerk of Superior Court told McClatchy News.

On Monday, McKey received a suspended sentence of 45 days in prison, with 12 months of supervised probation, the court said.

Meanwhile, Jordan received a 30-day suspended sentence, with 12 months of unsupervised probation.

A third woman, Tonacia Yvonne Tyson, 23, had also been arrested with the couple at the time of the incidents but was later acquitted of a misdemeanor.

Charged

During the investigation, one of the employees who was arrested allegedly told police that one of the elderly women was a ‘pain in the butt’ and that is why they had recorded the videos of the incidents.

Jordan was arrested on October 2, 2019 and charged with one count of assaulting a person with a disability. He was given an unsecured bond of $1,500.

Tyson was arrested a day later on the same assault charge. She was eventually released from custody with a written promise to appear in court.

McKey was arrested on October 10, 2019, on two counts of assaulting a person with a disability and posted on $1,000 unsecured bond.

The Danby House said the women were fired immediately after learning of the allegations against them.

“Danby House has a zero-tolerance policy for mistreatment of those in our care,” a spokesperson said in a statement to Fox 8, adding that the facility worked with police during the investigation.

Additional staff training and a more rigorous screening process have been implemented for all new and existing employees at Danby House. Danby House has undergone leadership changes in recent months, and we view situations like these as opportunities to improve the high level of care we provide our residents.’

Investigation

Authorities said the three women were employed at Danby House, which is a life support and memory care facility.

Court documents obtained by Fox 8 showed that McKey was accused of pushing a 73-year-old woman into her bedroom while Tyson and Jordan filmed the incident and did not intervene.

The documents also revealed a second incident, during which McKey, Tyson and Jordan watched, encouraged and videotaped the 73-year-old woman fighting a 70-year-old woman.

Investigators found that during the second incident, the elderly women, both dementia patients, got into a fight with each other in a bedroom, punching each other as staff looked on without attempting to physically stop the altercation, according to News & Record. When one of the patients asked for help, a staff member, it is not clear which one, told him to ‘stop yelling (expletive)’.

At some point in the fight, one of the old women began to choke the other. One of the staff members could be heard telling the woman to “punch her in the face,” while another member of staff tells her co-worker to film the fight and send him the video.

The investigation indicated that no injuries were reported or found in the elderly women.
