PITTSBURGH (AP) - A western Pennsylvania attorney who agreed to be disbarred in July has been charged with stealing $107,000 from the estate of a woman killed in a car crash.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 64-year-old Kirby Boring, of Franklin Park.

He faces an Oct. 21 preliminary hearing on charges announced Thursday by the Allegheny County district attorney’s office.

The DA says Boring deposited a $190,000 settlement check that another attorney won in a lawsuit stemming from the woman’s death. But instead of using the money to cover estate costs, the DA contends Boring - who has told investigators he has a gambling problem - spent $107,000.

Boring has repaid some of the money, but the estate is still about $57,000 short.

Boring didn’t immediately return a text message for comment. His cellphone’s mailbox was full.
