SEATTLE - A woman
accused of bilking an elderly woman out of more than $1 million now faces
King County prosecutors
say Brenda Nicholas and two others killed Navy veteran Francis Patrick Fleming
last December in his apartment at a senior housing complex after robbing him of
his coin collection. Fleming was 70.
Prosecutors say Fleming and Nicholas met through an 85-year-old woman.
Prosecutors say Nicholas manipulated the woman out of her life savings over a
two-year period while posing as a palm reader.
