Cesar Ulloa, 21, was alleged to have laughed as he viciously attacked residents of the home, some of whom had such severe dementia that they were unable to call for help, according to testimony at his trial.
Here's how one fellow caregiver described what she saw in one case: Ulloa jumped on a mute 78-year-old woman's chest and body-slammed her into a bed when she struggled.
According to testimony, another worker said she saw Ulloa jump from a dresser and land with both knees on an elderly man's abdomen. Ulloa also was accused of using the arm of a resident in a wheelchair to hit another resident who had dementia while encouraging them to fight, the Los Angeles Times reported.
