DURANGO, Iowa (AP) - A Durango woman has been charged with theft and elder abuse, accused of stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from an aunt who had Alzheimer's.
44-year-old Molly Bodish made an initial court appearance Wednesday and posted $5,000 bond.
The Associated Press could not find a phone number for Bodish on Thursday. The newspaper says Bodish didn't return its phone message seeking comment
Dubuque police say they began investigating the possible abuse of an 80-year-old woman in May 2015, after her death.
Police say a search of the woman's bank records show Bodish wrote checks to herself or for her personal use from her aunt's account totaling more than $365,000 over several years.
