She also started using a woman’s Walmart card in January 2017 without her knowing. By June 22, 2017, the card had an outstanding balance of $2,833.

She is additionally charged with two felony counts of exploitation of and intimidation of disabled adults, elder persons and residents; two counts of financial transaction card fraud; and three counts of identify fraud.

She remained in jail without bond Wednesday night.
