Wife of alleged con-man extradited back to East TN

MONROE COUNTY (WVLT) The woman who's believed to be the wife of Sweetwater con-man Todd Joseph Sweet is now back in the Volunteer state.

The Monroe County Buzz says Donna Poe was extradited from Arizona on Wednesday.

Poe was previously being help in the Yavapai County jail in Prescott.

Poe aka Donna Turpin, was escorted in a flight to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Poe was processed around 10:00 pm, and later questioned by members with the TBI.

Poe will remain in custody at the jail, where it was confirmed that she is expecting.

Poe and Sweet were arrested in early April after local officials say they scammed several people in the Sweetwater area.

Sweet has been charged with identity theft, theft depriving property or service, misconduct with a weapon, theft by transportation, and two counts of forgery.

No bond for Poe was set.
