Melinda Burns, 25, was indicted by a Hunterdon County Grand Jury on Feb. 16 on a charge of theft by unlawful taking, third degree.
Burns was a group home employee and allegedly stole money from the bank account of a woman entrusted to her care.
An investigation by Delaware Township police and the county Prosecutor’s Office was launched in April after a discrepancy was found in the woman’s financial records, said Patrolman Mark Kobner.
He said that Burns worked full-time at the group home, which he declined to identify, and provided care for the young woman, who was born with a syndrome marked by physical, mental and behavioral problems.
