TECUMSEH, Neb. (AP) -- A man has been accused of looting his ailing mother's bank account and not paying her bills in southeast Nebraska.

Nebraska City station KNCY reports that 58-year-old Gary Vaughn, of Auburn, is accused of misusing nearly $61,000 from his mother's account.

Court records say he's charged with three felony counts of abuse of a vulnerable adult. His attorney didn't immediately return a call Friday from The Associated Press.

Vaughn's next court date is Feb. 14.

An arrest warrant affidavit says Vaughn has power of attorney for his 83-year-old mother and is supposed to be paying her bills. The affidavit says the facility caring for his mother is owed nearly $28,000.
