Man charged with stealing thousands from his mother

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man faces charges after being accused of stealing thousands of dollars from his mother.

Police say 57-year-old William Magby used a revoked power of attorney to access his elderly mother's bank account. He withdrew over forty thousand dollars without her knowledge or permission.

In addition, arrest reports show Magby also took six thousand dollars from his mother's annuity account.

Magby is currently on probation from similar charges in 2009.
