A man and wife accused of bilking an elderly woman of her life savings of over a million dollars are facing new charges in Walker County, Ga.
The Walker County Grand Jury this week returned six indictments against Roger A. and Christi Pinion Morgan, including a count of violating the state's RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) statute.
They are also charged with five counts each of tax evasion.
The Morgans are due in court next Monday in Chattanooga before Judge Rebecca Stern on charges of theft over $60,000. It was claimed they used Jackie Humphrey's debit card in Hamilton County for at least $83,000 in purchases as well as $20,000 in purchases by their son, Christopher Morgan.
Roger Morgan was formerly a part-time preacher at North LaFayette Baptist Church.
They were sued in Georgia on grounds that they spent nearly $1.3 million of Ms. Humphrey's money over a three-year period beginning in 2008. That case was blocked when the couple filed for bankruptcy in Chattanooga.
It was claimed they had bought a 2,500-square-foot home outside Chickamauga for cash during the alleged spending spree.
