Nursing Home Workers Ran 'Fight Ring' Involving Dementia Patients

Three North Carolina staffers are accused of running a fight club between dementia patients at an assisted-living facility. Authorities say 32-year-old Marilyn Latish McKey, 20-year-old Tonacia Yvonne Tyson and 26-year-old Taneshia Deshawn Jordan watched and filmed two elderly women fight at the Danby House in Winston-Salem. Investigators claim that the workers were encouraging a fight between the 70-year-old and 73-year-old as well as other residents, including an assault in a separate incident. Danby House issued a statement saying the three were fired in June after becoming aware of the situation. They all face a charge of assaulting disabled persons.
