RIPLEY – A Jackson County woman is suing her husband and a bank, claiming her name was removed from a joint account in an alleged scheme hatched by his heir to steal their money.
Sharon Campbell filed a lawsuit April 15 in Jackson Circuit Court against Garry Campbell and United Bank Inc.
According to the complaint, after Sharon and Garry Campbell married in 1993, they opened a joint savings account at United Bank, entirely with Sharon’s funds. Recently, the suit says, Sharon found out her name had been removed from the account for reasons unknown to her. She claims that Garry, an Alzheimer’s sufferer, was manipulated by his daughter from a previous marriage in an alleged attempt to gain access to the funds.
Campbell seeks a court order freezing the joint account until a competency hearing is held. She is represented by Sissonville attorney Walton S. Shepherd III.
