PT)--An Enid couple accused of defrauding an Enid widow of more than $1.5 million waived their rights to a preliminary hearing Wednesday. According to Enid News and Eagle, 46 year-old Kimberly Mullen and 44 year-old Norman Mullen were set for preliminary hearing on felony charges of exploitation of an elderly person and conspiracy. Kimberly Mullen also faces charges of abuse by caretaker and false declaration of ownership in pawn. The pair were charged in September 2018, and accused of stealing more than $1.5 million in money, jewelry and other assets from a then 86-year-old Enid woman. Kimberly also was set for preliminary hearing in another case filed earlier this year, on charges of financial exploitation of an elderly person or disabled adult and two counts of obtaining money by false pretense. She waived her right to a hearing in that case, too. The pair was ordered to be back in court next month for arraignment and a bond appearance.

OL)--An Enid woman was charged this week with a felony count of child abuse after her foster child told Enid Police Department officers the woman had hit him. Enid News and Eagle reports 32 year-old Sharon Renee Carter was arrested June 12 after dropping off her 4-year-old foster son at day care with bruising and redness in the form of a handprint across his face. When Carter was interviewed by police, she reportedly admitted to losing her temper while admonishing the child about bad behavior reported by the daycare facility and slapping and spanking the boy. If found guilty Carter faces up to a year in county jail, or up to life in prison and/or a fine. She is set to be arraigned Friday.
