Singer convicted in scheme to fleece thousands from estate
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut gospel singer has been convicted of conspiring with a former minister to fleece hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Trumbull man’s estate.
The Bridgeport Superior Court jury of four women and two men deliberated for about four and a half hours before finding the 60-year-old Doraine Reed guilty of multiple counts of larceny. The Connecticut Post reports Reed vowed “this is not over,” as she was led away in handcuffs Wednesday.
The jury found that Reed acted as the principal in a scheme with former pastor Robert Genevicz to take over the home and property of 88-year-old Arthur Devack of Trumbull. The 67-year-old Genevicz has pleaded guilty to larceny charges.
Reed faces up to 70 years in prison at her December sentencing.
