More charges filed against 'care giver'

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

Moultrie, GA (WALB) –  Investigators filed more charges in a disturbing case of elder abuse in Moultrie.

Police say the man who was supposed to be caring for the 74-year-old woman was taking her Social Security checks.

Seven warrants for forgery have been issued against 55-year-old Royce Dillard, Junior.

Working with the Social Security Administration, police learned Dillard cashed seven of Christine Welch's checks.

Welch never designated a payee, so no one was legally authorized to cash the checks.

Welch lived in a 3rd Street Northwest home with two caregivers, Dillard and 34-year old Tosha Chambers.

They were both charged with cruelty to a person over 65 after Welch was discovered severely malnourished and with horrible bed sores.

She had to have both legs amputated. One above the knee and one below, and is now recovering in a Valdosta nursing home.
