Sheriff: Springfield woman stole from 93-year-old
SPRINGFIELD (AP) - The Greene County Sheriff's Office has arrested a woman who deputies say stole from a 93-year-old man by exposing herself and telling him she wanted to marry him.
The Springfield News-Leader reports 45-year-old Melva Bozman has been charged with financial exploitation of an elderly person in thefts that happened earlier this year.
Authorities say she persuaded the man to give more than $25,000. The man's son tells authorities his father is vulnerable because of his age, dementia and the death of his wife. He says Bozman exposed herself, tried to initiate sex and told the man she loved him.
Bozman tells authorities she used his credit card and took his cash.
She is being held at the county jail on $25,000 bond. It wasn't immediately available if Bozman has an attorney.
