Stan Lee's former manager denies charges of elder abuse
Stan Lee's former manager has pleaded not guilty to charges of elder abuse against the Marvel Comics legend.
Keya Morgan is accused of stealing more than $100,000 (€88,500) in goods and property from the superhero creator, whose estate was worth an estimated $50m.
The New York-based memorabilia collector also faces five counts of elder abuse, including false imprisonment, fraud and forgery. He denies all of the charges.
Lee, the co-creator of 'Spider-Man', 'Iron Man', 'The Hulk' and dozens of other Marvel superheroes, died last November, aged 95.
Mr Morgan, who was also Lee's caregiver, began working for him in February 2018 following the death a few months earlier of his wife of 70 years, Joan.
The 43-year-old was arrested in Arizona last month and his bail was set at $300,000. (© Independent News Service)
