Time has taken away some of Eloise Mudway's physical and mental abilities.
She has difficulty recalling names, dates and times; struggles to hear and gets around only with the help of a wheelchair. Fortunately, she has retained a healthy sense of humor.
Eloise Mudway, 92, needed it today as she spent more than three hours on the witness stand answering a barrage of questions from Assistant State Attorney Mike Halkitis and defense attorneys Dean Livermore and Mark Goettel.
"God help me," she said during one break in her testimony.
Livermore and Goettel represent Cynthia and Joseph Clancy, a local couple prosecutors contend swindled Mudway out of her $370,000 house and other assets between 2001 and 2005.
The Clancys are each charged with one count of grand theft from a person over 65 and both face a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison. Prosecutors are expected to rest their case Friday but jury deliberations and a verdict will likely not come until Monday.
