VICKSBURG, Miss. (WLBT) - A second woman has been arrested after a disturbing video surfaced on social media showing an elderly woman being abused.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said that Monique Weimer, 31, of Vicksburg turned herself in to Detective Stacy Rollison at the Warren County Sheriff Department Tuesday.

Weimer is charged with Accessory Before The Fact to Inflicting Physical Pain or injury on a Vulnerable Person.

She had her initial court appearance in justice court. Her bail was set this afternoon in Justice Court at $50,000. But she remains in police custody at the Warren County Jail.

A Texas woman surrendered earlier this week.

Sheriff Pace says Myesha Wills, 30, of Arlington, TX was accompanied by her attorney on May 28th when she surrendered to the Warren County Sheriff’s Department.

Wills is charged with felonious infliction of physical pain or injury on a vulnerable person.

Videos show Wills allegedly abusing an elderly relative.

Pace said Wills had her initial court appearance on May 28 and her bail was set at $250,000.

Sheriff Pace says other details about the case cannot be released at this time because the case remains under investigation.

Other arrests are possible; the investigation is ongoing.
