A woman charged with defrauding and stealing more than $100,000 from Red Deer senior has had her case adjourned until later this month.
RCMP allege that Kimberly Blackburn, 42, took the money from a 95-year-old person for whom she had been a caregiver between May 2009 and October 2011. A complaint was laid last Oct. 31 when a bank contacted members of the senior’s family in relation to discrepancies in a bank account.
Blackburn was arrested on March 27 and made her first court appearance in Red Deer provincial court on Thursday. She was released from custody on $5,000 bail and is to return to court on April 18 to enter a plea on charges of fraud and theft.
