A western Pennsylvania woman has been charged with stealing $182,000 from her mother by cashing in the elderly woman's life insurance policy and taking other money from her mother's Social Security and black lung benefit checks.
Online court records don't list an attorney for 48-year-old Kimberly Fulton, of Homer City, who faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 11.
Fulton didn't answer a phone listed in her name, which had a voice mail system that wasn't working Monday.
State police began investigating after other family members contacted Indiana County Aging Services Inc. to complaint that they were being excluded from decisions involving their mother's finances. Police say Fulton paid her mother's expenses with the monthly benefit checks, but kept the rest of the money for herself, along with the $125,000 insurance policy.
Police say that started in October 2008.
