Lackawanna County District Attorney Mark Powell on Wednesday called them a "modern-day Bonnie and Clyde."
Dorri Smith's attorney, Curt Parkins, says the DA is blowing the case out of proportion. He says his client "bears the lease amount of culpability of anybody involved."
Francis Smith's attorney didn't immediately return a phone message.
Both defendants are being held without bail.
