A Bismarck woman is accused of coercing an elderly man with dementia into giving her $110,000 a month before his death.
Rebecca Vandal was charged Tuesday in South Central District Court with exploitation of a vulnerable adult. The 49-year-old posted $10,000 bond.
Court documents say Vandal took 85-year-old Gerd Ebel on Jan. 6 to a bank, where he transferred $110,000 from a certificate of deposit into Vandal's account.
Court documents say Ebel was hospitalized Dec. 31 to Jan. 5, at which time a doctor ruled him incompetent to make decisions due to dementia.
