ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Prosecutors have charged a Roseville man and his wife with bilking his mother out of almost $200,000.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Gregory and Kelly Harrington were both charged Thursday with felony financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult.
According to the criminal complaint, Gregory's 94-year-old mother gave the couple power of attorney in 2015 before she moved into a senior living development.
The woman had $380,000 in savings then. Investigators determined the couple spent about $197,000 of that on expenses that didn't benefit her.
The couple maintained that they reached a family agreement that they could spend the woman's money.
