Oklahoma City police arrested the two after viewing a video the victim's family placed in the patient's room. Police say Gakunga was seen slapping the senior citizen in the face and shoving gloves into her mouth. Kaseke is accused of watching it and not doing anything to stop it.

Family members of the elderly woman suspected that workers were stealing from her, but they needed to prove it. So, they installed a hidden camera in her room, which caught the alleged abuse on camera.
