Plea expected from woman who allegedly stole from elderly couple
Valerie Trunfio, 37, of Hampton is facing charges of forgery and receiving stolen property for allegedly writing five checks to herself while caring for the couple last May.
Terms of her plea deal have not yet been made public. The five counts of forgery are punishable by up to 3½ to 7 years in state prison.North Hampton police arrested Trunfio in August after the son of the victims began reviewing his parent's checkbook.
Trunfio cashed five checks which she wrote out to herself totaling $2,000 during a 16-day period, police said.
North Hampton police Detective Peter Cormier and Hampton police Detective Chris Gilroy interviewed Trunfio and confronted her with the surveillance footage and four of the signed checks.
But the elderly woman told police that she never gave Trunfio permission to write her own checks from the account. The woman also mentioned to police that Trunfio left behind an oxygen monitor at the home as well.
Exeter police matched the monitor's serial number to the one found in North Hampton, police said. The monitor was previously in a section of the hospital where Trunfio worked, according to Cormier.
