Police allege that Keya Morgan, Stan Lee’s manager, embezzled millions of dollars from him.

Stan Lee’s caretaker Keya Morgan was charged on Friday with a slew of charges, including fraud, false imprisonment and felony elder abuse after he allegedly mishandled more than $5 million of the late Marvel founder’s money, according to CBS.

Morgan, who was also Lee’s former business partner, also faces charges for theft, embezzlement and elder abuse, according to the Los Angeles Superior Court Public Information Office. An arrest warrant is out for the caretaker.

Lee, who died last November at 95, was the creator of a number of beloved characters including Spider-Man and Iron-Man.

This is not Morgan’s first brush with the law. He was arrested in June of last year for making two false 911 calls, in which he claimed that Lee’s house had been robbed and that he had been assaulted by one of the Marvel boss’ bodyguards.

Lee was given a restraining order against Morgan shortly after.

The Marvel executive’s lawyers claim Morgan mishandled large sums of Lee’s money. They also argue the caretaker purposely isolated Lee from his family, moved him out of his home, and exerted “undue influence” on him.
