BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Charges have been upgraded against a Louisiana woman 
accused of beating a 93-year-old grandmother in an alleged assault caught on 
video. News outlets report 57-year-old Lottie Morgan has been charged with 
felony aggravated second-degree battery. She's expected in court Friday. Morgan 
is allegedly seen beating a person with a belt in the short video shared online 
and with police. A family member says that person is a 93-year-old grandmother. 
Morgan was the grandmother's caregiver. Morgan was initially arrested and 
charged earlier this month. Then she posted bond and reportedly returned to the 
home with the grandmother. It's unclear whether Morgan had an attorney who could 
speak on her behalf.
