MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Three women have been charged with forgery over the estate of the late state Rep. Ulysses Jones.
Sandra Richards, Avis Langford-Brannon and Beverly Prye have all surrendered after a Shelby County grand jury returned indictments against them last week, according to The Commercial Appeal. All are charged with tampering with or fabricating evidence, aggravated perjury and forgery over $60,000.
They are all employees of the Memphis Fire Department where Jones was a battalion chief.
Jones died at 59 in November 2010 of complications from pneumonia.
After his death, Richards said Jones was her fiance and presented a will witnessed by the other two women.
A court ruled it a forgery and awarded Jones' estate to his son and daughter.
It wasn't clear whether the accused had attorneys.
