Rogue house help has pleaded guilty to five of 15 counts of hurting the old woman at her employer’s home in the Lavender district in Indonesia
An Indonesian woman whose mother was bedridden, had weak kidneys, diabetes and showed signs of dementia although she was not formally diagnosed, needed somebody to take care of her.
She had no choice but to leave her ill mother to helper who would take care of her mother while she was away for work.
But when she got home, she saw something horrifying on the CCTV camera she left at home—something that made her report it to the police
In the footage, the helper, Murni Panengsih, 25, can be seen beating her mother. She would elbow the 96-year-old woman, hit her on the face and head, and even pressed her head hard into the pillow she was lying on.
