SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Sioux City police say a woman stole over $30,000 from her disabled father.

Officials say Diane Davis-Sattizahn, 37, was arrested Tuesday and faces first-degree theft and dependent adult abuse charges. Court documents say she was the financial caretaker of her father, who lives in a retirement home and has Parkinson’s disease.

Police say she didn’t pay for his medication or care between December 2014 and January 2016, which put him $50,000 in debt. She is also accused of stealing $30,000 from his bank account during that time.

Online court records don’t list the name of an attorney who could comment on her behalf.
