CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. (AP) - Court records show the owners of a California assisted care facility where authorities say 14 patients were left with just a skeleton staff had a history of financial problems.

The Contra Costa Times reported Tuesday that Hilda Manuel ran Valley Springs Manor in Castro Valley with her husband, Rodelio, and daughter, Mary.

Court records obtained by the newspaper say the Manuels have been sued since the mid-1990s for allegedly failing to pay bills, including a $4.1 million loan from Wells Fargo Bank.

Hilda Manuel's lawyer, Orrin Grover, said his client paid back most of the debts by 2005.

Grover also said she was trying to find homes for the patients remaining at the facility and had not abandoned them.
