38-year-old Alicia M. Kelly and 39-year-old Steven Scott Kelly have been charged with swindling.
Sheriff’s investigations began receiving information from individuals that the Kelly’s story about their daughter’s cancer and her treatment was suspicious.
During questioning Alicia Kelly admitted that her daughter never had cancer and had never been treated for cancer.
The Kelly’s reportedly scammed people through benefits and fundraisers claiming they did not have enough money to treat their daughter’s disease.
The Kelly’s also set up a website to share their daughter’s supposed daily struggle with cancer through an online journal and to solicit donations.
