By Richard Pratt

STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) — A 32-year-old Storm Lake woman has been accused of neglecting her mother and stealing from her.

Police say Erika Larios hadn't been taking her mother in for kidney dialysis and had been spending her mother's Social Security payments on herself. Police say Larios had removed her mother from a nursing home in Rock Island, Ill., and took her to Storm Lake.

Larios is charged with felony dependent adult financial abuse and dependent adult abuse causing bodily injury. State authorities have removed Larios' mother from Larios' care.

A public phone listing couldn't be found for Larios. Online court records don't list the name of her attorney in the case.
