(MEDFORD, ORE.) – An Oregon woman was arrested Friday and booked into the Jackson County jail on accusations she tried to murder two elderly people and defrauded and stole more than a half million dollars from them.
Medford police say Karin Karly Boldt, 55, was a caregiver for the unidentified victims.
A report by The Oregonian newspaper said investigators were tipped off to suspicious activity by Boldt after the victims were hospitalized in March of last year when a social worker and other medical providers realized that the victims’ rapidly declining health didn’t seem to be related to their previously diagnosed medical conditions.
Police say Boldt had tried to place the pair in hospice, that their health was so poor by the time authorities intervened that they almost died but after they were removed from Boldt’s care, they both made a full recovery.
The newspaper report says Boldt was charged with two counts of attempted murder, money laundering, criminal mistreatment, aggravated theft and theft.
