Nov 1, 2013

A Utica woman has been indicted on charges of faking a cancer diagnosis for her 4-year-old son in order to collect donations.

31-year-old Emily Creno allegedly convinced him and others he was dying and bilked people out of donations. Creno was arrested in September. She will be arraigned Tuesday. Her attorney plans to pursue an insanity plea and a competency evaluation.
