Police: Pleasant Unity woman took $32K from father's estate
A Pleasant Unity woman is accused of taking $32,000 from her father’s estate that was to be split with her two siblings, according to county detectives.
Kim Ellen Shilobod, 62, was charged Thursday with theft and misapplication of entrusted property.
Detectives said Shilobod was named executrix of her father’s estate after the World War II veteran’s 1999 death. Six years later when his house was sold, she opened a bank account with the proceeds, investigators said.
During orphans court proceedings in 2017, Shilobod claimed the amount remaining in the account after paying various expenses and taxes was $32,547, police said. She was removed as executrix in April.
Later in 2018, she was ordered by a judge to provide a notarized record of the account activity and the $32,547 purported to be remaining in the account, according to the complaint.
Detectives said Shilobod has not presented the court the money or notarized accounting.
Bank records showed that Shilobod wrote 22 checks from the account between 2015 and 2017 to herself for $56,244.83, leaving the account empty, according to the affidavit.
A warrant has been issued for her arrest. She did not have an attorney listed in online court records. She could not be reached Friday.
