OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A former Oklahoma City nursing home business manager accused of misappropriating money intended for three of the home’s elderly residents has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

The Oklahoman (https://bit.ly/1TJBsd7 ) reported Friday that 45-year-old Amy Klimkowski was sentenced on Wednesday. She had pleaded guilty to three counts of financial exploitation of an elderly adult, eight counts of obtaining money by false pretenses and two counts of obtaining money by false pretenses.

Prosecutors say Klimkowski exploited three residents of Windsor Hills Nursing Center, and used the stolen money for gambling purposes. Prosecutors say the money included Social Security and Medicare benefits.

Klimkowski has been ordered to pay $124,111 in restitution.
