Two carers are accused of controlling the lives of an elderly couple in Torremolinos. The Prosecutor’s Office says the women managed the couple’s assets and isolated them from friends and family.

The carers face five years behind bars after allegedly taking full control of the couple’s money and lives. Manuel and Francisca, names used to protect their identity, needed help after Manuel suffered a stroke. The two defendants, who are sisters, offered to provide care for nothing in return.

However, prosecution states they isolater the elders and didn’t let them visits or calls from concerned neighbours, friends or family.  They also got Manuel to open a bank account to which they had access and convinced the elderly man to make a €2,000 monthly transfer to this same account. One of the two cars owned by the marriage was also put in the carer’s name and, when Francisca died, they granted a will naming one of the sisters as universal heiress.
