Defendant Changes Plea in Elder Abuse Case

[Victims grandson & victims daughter charged]

"An elder abuse suspect facing five years in prison surprised everyone -- including his attorney -- when he withdrew his no contest plea just before sentencing Thursday morning."

"The charge stems from allowing Margaret Gray, the 90-year-old bedridden victim, to lie for weeks in her own urine and excrement. Gray, who was McCoy's grandmother and Green's mother, died at a health care center a few months after the abuse was discovered."

"Gray was dehydrated, there was minimal muscle tissue on her body and her heart was racing at 180 to 200 beats per minute, the reports say. She had numerous bedsores, including a large ulcer on her back so severe that her tailbone was exposed."
