Police arrest Danville woman on elder abuse, neglect charges

Special to the Enquirer

July 9 deputies with the Morgan County Sheriff’s Office responded to a domestic violence call in the 100 block of Laney Road in Danville – and what they found led to the arrest of a Danville woman.

Upon arrival, deputies reported finding an elderly victim who had been beaten. The victim indicated she had been struck on the head multiple times. She was transported to the hospital for her injuries and is expected to recover, according to the MCSO.

Prior to the deputies’ arrival, the alleged attacker had left the scene but was located a short time later in Hartselle.

Investigators arrived on scene and arrested Jessica Nicole Laney, 44, of Danville and charged her with elder abuse and neglect in the second degree. Her bond was set at $50,000.

Additional charges are possible, according to the MCSO.
