EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A woman who worked as a caregiver was sentenced Tuesday in Eugene to more than four years in prison for taking more than $26,000 from an elderly man.

The 56-year-old Bimla Boyd pleaded guilty to stealing assets between March 2010 and last April. She also pleaded guilty to food stamp and welfare fraud.

A Lane County Circuit Court judge gave Boyd a longer sentence than she might have received because she was on parole at the time for a 2002 manslaughter.

The Register-Guard reports (http://is.gd/i5E4jt ) Boyd signed the title of a Eugene home and a car back over to the 85-year-old man in the courtroom.
