A caretaker who was supposed to watch over an elderly sick woman, beat her up because she fed the dog human food, according to police in Texas.

The Houston Police Department said that they have arrested 59-year-old Brenda Floyd, after being accused of beating 94-year-old Dorothy Bratten.

Floyd has been charged with one count of injury to an elderly person. She faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.

According to the criminal complaint, when Bratten’s son noticed that his mother had unexplained bruises, he decided to install a hidden camera in her home.

One day, he saw footage of Floyd screaming at his mother for feeding the dog human food. Floyd then ordered the old woman to get up and go to bed.

She then beat her while continuing to scream about her feeding the dog human food. When Floyd learned about the video, she disappeared.

After about a week on the run, someone called police to reveal Floyd’s location.
