The charges are concerning a last year incident when Lee was 95 years old. According to those court documents, Morgan mishandled more than $5 million and tried to isolate Lee from his family. Morgan reportedly had Lee moved into an unfamiliar condominium and hired security guards to keep his family away.

Lee died in November at the age of 95.
