CHARLESTON - The executor of a woman's estate is arguing that the man to whom she gave power of attorney abused it.
Bobby Page filed the lawsuit June 19 in Kanawha Circuit Court as the executor of the Estate of Margaret Page. P. Michael Page is the defendant.
Bobby says Michael was given power of attorney on June 2, 2004, in order to manage Margaret's financial situation. When she passed away Feb. 9, Bobby was named executor of the estate and discovered, he says, that Michael had embezzled more than $77,000 from Margaret's account.
"P. Michael Page willfully misappropriated, transferred and converted the assets of the Estate of Margaret Page for his own personal benefit or the benefit of others in a manner not contemplated by the power of attorney executed by Margaret Page," the complaint says.
Bobby, of Charleston, says three withdrawals were made by Michael from Margaret's account that totaled $77,958.55. He has demanded a complete record of Michael's financial management.
"P. Michael Page failed to respond to the demand for accounting or provide any ledgers, records or other explanation of his management of the Estate of Margaret Page," the complaint says;.
Alum Creek attorney Jerry Alford is representing the plaintiff, who is seeking the $77,958.55.
Judge Jim Stucky has been assigned the case.
