Perry County Coroner Herbert Miller is facing felony charges after he allegedly spent the money of a 94-year-old woman for his own use.
Court documents say Miller was appointed the woman's guardian in 2004. She went into a nursing home in 2008 with dementia and other disabilities.
Miller is accused of writing checks from the woman's account totaling $80,600. Investigators say the woman's bills at the nursing home weren't paid and she was denied Medicaid benefits, meaning she could be evicted.
