William Sutton, 66, is accused in the attack on Margaret Wood, who lives in hospice care with her best friend, Marian Kubic.

Wood's granddaughter-in-law, Lisa Wood, told police she found a video recorded April 16 that shows Sutton, who was Kubic's caretaker, pushing Wood through Kubic's screen door.

Family members said Wood landed head-first three steps below on the concrete porch, cracking her skull and breaking her nose.

Wood is now relegated to a wheelchair, according to relatives.
