Lillian King Niece Refutes Theft, Abuse Charges

In an emotional outpouring, Cindy Hurley, the grand niece of a wealthy elderly woman who filed a restraining order against her last week, said she loves her great aunt and didn’t steal more than $1 million in cash and precious coins or put her life at risk.

“She accused me of being a thief, and that hurts,” Hurley said.

“I had to sell some gold coins to pay for labor, for taxes, and materials,” Hurley said. “I got a little out of hand. There are some things I probably spent a little more than I should of.” She said she was referring to a $2,000 used motorhome and landscaping tools.
