MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A Montgomery County woman faces charges after investigators say she lied about her son having cancer to scam people.
Police arrested Ashley King after a grand jury indicted her for theft by deception.
Investigators say late last year she claimed her young son had been diagnosed with cancer, and ended up collecting more than $2,000 in donations.
Investigators say the child was not sick.
King has since bonded out of jail.
