MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A man who was the caregiver for a 71-year-old man who died last year of complications from multiple blunt force injuries has been indicted in West Tennessee on second-degree murder and other charges.

Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich said in a news release that 37-year-old Joshua Gilley was also indicted Tuesday on charges of physical abuse-gross neglect of an impaired adult and aggravated assault with a bullwhip.

Weirich’s office said Mackie Finlay died 14 months ago, a day after he was taken to a hospital with injuries that investigators allege were consistent with abuse. Injuries included broken bones, chest abrasions, bruises, brain injury and internal injuries.

It was not clear whether Gilley was represented by a lawyer who could comment on the case.
