DENVER (AP) - A woman who was convicted of swindling at-risk seniors through a kitchen remodeling business she ran with her husband has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/zv82cI ) 58-year-old Susan Hinojosa was sentenced Friday on charges of theft and check fraud.

Prosecutors say she and her husband, who ran Kitchens 4 Less and Kitchens 2 Go in Adams County, took money for remodeling jobs and then did little or no work. The deposits the couple collected were mixed with other funds and used for personal purposes.

The charges involve 27 victims who lost more than $140,000 between April 2012 and November 2013. The couple filed for bankruptcy in November 2013.

Herman Hinojosa is scheduled to enter a plea in his case on March 28.
