A 49-year-old Westland woman has been charged in the theft of more than $350,000 from her elderly mother.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office said Monday that Carol Brazeika was arraigned on three counts of embezzlement over $100,000, five counts of identity theft and other charges.

Authorities say the retirement, pension and Social Security funds were taken from Brazeika's 76-year-old mother over five years.

The older woman's identity also was used to open credit card accounts and to obtain loans.

Brazeika's bond was set at $350,000. A preliminary examination is scheduled for Dec. 2.

She has requested a court-appointed lawyer.

    What a piece of work this person is. I hope they throw the book at her. You realize that Momma had an idea that this was going on, or needs to be in a home. What kind of scum robs their parents?
