EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) -- A 56-year-old Emporia woman accused of misusing money that belonged to her 93-year-old mother-in-law has been convicted of mistreating a dependent adult.
The office of the Kansas attorney general said in a release that Dalene Miller also was found guilty Thursday of conspiring to mistreat a dependent adult. Her trial in Lyon County lasted four days.
The attorney general says Miller was accused of misusing her mother-in-law's money of her mother-in-law from 2011 to 2012 while Miller was acting as the older woman's trustee. Miller was accused of buying a house, farm and a truck while her mother-in-law's expenses went unpaid.
Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 26.
