I am glad that she found out what was happening before it was too late. I hope the niece gets the mental help she obviously needs.

Sounds like the neice may be trying to cash in on a life insuarnce policy. How SAD.

Sounds like the dastardly *niece* has already been assumed guilty, arrested, tried, and convicted for a crime that makes no sense. Gasoline in auntie's glass of water? Perhaps this occurred, but as someone who was recently arrested for the first time in 60 years for a *trespassing* that never occurred, based on a single accusation, this odd incident just doesn't smell right, from my perspective.
