ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a Roseville man and his wife with bilking his elderly mother out of almost $200,000.
Gregory and Kelly Harrington were both charged Thursday with felony financial exploitation of a vulnerable adult, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reported.
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. They depleted her savings so much that she couldn’t pay her living expenses. The couple moved her into an 8-foot-by-10-foot room in their basement that was just big enough for a bed, chair and television, the complaint said.
The couple maintained that they reached a family agreement that they could spend the woman’s money.

Richardson qualified with a 100-meter time of 10.86 seconds. It was .13 seconds faster than Javianne Oliver, who finished second. She will look to qualify in the 200 meters later this week at the trials.
The young track star turned pro following her freshman year at LSU in which she won the 2019 NCAA title in the same event. She's become a household name as the Olympics approach and ran the second-fastest time in the 100-meter in the world this year. The 10.72 second race she completed at the Miramar Invitational in April is the sixth-fastest time in history, though Jamaica's Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce beat it with a 10.63 earlier in June.
She is looking to become the first American to win gold at the 100-meters since Gail Devers in 1996. Elaine Thompson of Jamaica won gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics and Fraser-Pryce took the top spot at the two prior Olympics in 2008 and 2012.
