Keya Morgan was charged Friday with multiple counts of elder abuse, including alleged false imprisonment, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles Superior Court told CNN. A $300,000 arrest warrant was issued for Morgan’s arrest, the spokesperson said.
CNN has reached out to Morgan for comment.
A memorabilia collector, Morgan reportedly became close to Lee after the death of his wife, Joan Lee, in 2017.
“Petitioner, along with law enforcement and Adult Protective Services, believes that Mr. Morgan is unduly influencing Mr. Lee and isolating him,” a petition for the restraining order, filed last June by Lee’s former attorney, Tom Lallas, stated.
Lee was the creator of dozens of iconic comic figures, including Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man and Black Panther.
CNN has reached out to Lee’s representatives for comment.
