Why a 28-year-old man allegedly beat his 93-year-old girlfriend


Thomas Standley, 28, was arrested after allegedly beating his 93-year-old girlfriend. According to a reports by WMC News in Memphis, Standley attempted to make his live-in girlfriend take her medication.

However, Standley became violent after she refused the drugs. He choked the 93-year-old woman, gabbed her arms, and squeezed them while shaking her. The woman’s daughter, who lives in a duplex next door, heard the commotion and went to check on the noise. When she went inside the home, Standley pushed her out of the door. The woman called police and Standley was arrested.

Apparently, Standley would give his 93-year-old girlfriend her medicine and cook for her. But court records show that he assaulted the woman on more than one occasion.

Standley has been charged with domestic assault.

    What the hell is this world coming too? The daughter must have issues also, to even let her mother be with a 23 year old boy. The daughter should have been taking care of her mother, her mother took care of her. This monster have done this before….lock his @ up and throw away the key!
