we had to lock up our older cat to protect her/
what should we do??? we need help

don't worry this is a common problem is cause trauma aggression. it is rather odd behavior as basically something has scared one of your cats and they are transferring that fear onto the other cat. Sort of blaming them for it.
You need to go through a period of reintroduction for the two cats. It does take little time and patience but allows the cats time and space to calm down and then to get to know each other agin in a safe environment. this page will tell you how to go about it.reintroducing cats
