A former chief executive of Stan Lee has been charged with five counts of older abuse against the late Marvel Comics mogul.
Los Angeles County prosecutors filed charges against 43-year-old Keya Morgan, including allegations of theft, poisoning, forgery or fraud against an older adult and false jail of an older adult.
A warrant has been issued for Morgan's arrest.
Lawyer Alex Kessel says that Morgan is not guilty, has never abused or exploited Lee in any way and will be freed.
In June, lawyers for the 95-year-old Lee and his daughter were granted an arrest warrant against Morgan, who separated him from Lee and revealed that the police were investigating him for older abuse.
Lee, co-creator of such characters as Spider-Man, Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, died in November.
