LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - A 61-year-old Lincoln man has been accused of fleecing an ailing aunt out of around $127,000.

Online court records say Brian Nelson was charged Thursday with abuse of a vulnerable adult. Online jail records say Nelson remained in custody Friday. Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on Nelson’s behalf.

A court document says Nelson told an investigator that he’d been caring for the woman and borrowing money from her. Nelson says he intends to pay her back. The investigator says in the court document that the 92-year-old woman was diagnosed last year with dementia.
