# Roommates, it has been proven time and time again that people will literally do anything for money — including explaining to your longtime husband about a serious illness. A Connecticut woman did just that, as she recently arrested herself when it was discovered that she believed her husband had Alzheimer’s to steal half a million dollars from her.
োর্ট People Report, Donna Marino, 63, was Arrested in Connecticut And she has been charged with first-degree larceny and third-degree fraud after an investigation that determined she had voluntarily cheated her 78-year-old husband for an estimated $ 600,000 over the past 20 years and believed she had Alzheimer’s to cover her illegality. Activity In January, during a meeting with investigators, Marino “admitted to signing her husband’s pension check and depositing it in her mother’s bank account for almost thirteen years.”
He further revealed that when he was asked to go to the bank, he would tell him “the last time he went inside he did a scene due to his Alzheimer’s disease, which resulted in [him] You don’t have to go in to avoid embarrassment. “”[I] This created the scene to prevent John from going inside the bank and discovering a low balance in their account. Marino confirmed that she had illegally obtained a power of attorney for her husband and used that power to file income tax for him. In addition to keeping his personal belongings, he forged his signature on “his pension check, social security check, worker’s compensation settlement and other legal documents” and deposited the money in a secret bank account, according to police.
Fortunately, Marino’s stepdaughter is the one who first noticed the shady activity when she first alerted her parents and authorities in March 2019. At the time, Marino’s husband explained that his wife “always controlled his money” and “had no idea he was taking money from her.”
Even more shocking is that the police say that the total amount that Marino stole has exceeded $ 600,000, but due to the rules of limitation, the money that he has stolen in the last five years can be investigated.
