FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - Gina Browning said she had trusted Cammie Henson implicitly with the care of her father-in-law and brother-in-law, both disabled veterans, but investigators say Henson had stolen nearly $20,000 from them.
Browning says her mother-in-law had hired Cammie Henson to be in charge of caring for Jack Browning, Sr. and Jack Browning, Jr., who needed round-the-clock care. When Gina took over care after her mother-in-law died, she saw no reason to scrutinize Henson.
"They were members of the same church, which, to me spoke volumes," she said.
Eventually, she said she noticed something wasn't right.
"I started doing my own investigating," Browning said.
In all, investigators say Henson had stolen nearly $20,000 over about a year and a half period by charging for hours that weren't worked or using a debit card for illegitimate transactions.
"I felt betrayed. I felt sad. I felt horrified," said Browning.
Henson's been charged with two counts of knowingly exploiting an adult and is lodged at the Franklin County Regional Jail.
