A married couple is due in a Northampton County court Monday on charges they extorted money from an elderly woman.
Mary and Charlie King reportedly took around $117,000 from the woman. Court records show Mary King is charged with larceny by employee and extortion. Charlie King is charged with conspiracy.
The Roanoke Chowan News Herald says Mary worked for an 83-year-old, as an assistant in her home, and started demanding the woman sign blank checks.
