JASPER, Ala. (WIAT) - The mystery surrounding two missing elderly Walker County women may soon be solved.
A West Virginia woman is in custody facing forgery charges.
Walker County law enforcement arrested Wanda Kiser Tuesday. She was indicted on 17 counts of forgery in relation to the ten year old case.
Walker County District Attorney Bill Adair says it could be the beginning of closure for friends and family of the two women who haven't been seen at their Jasper home since about 2002.
He says they vanished sometime while Kiser was supposed to be taking care of them.
Wanda Kiser is suspected of forging documents in both 104-year-old Mary Cobb's name and her 83-year-old daughter Wynona Delvecchio to collect their benefits.
Cobb received a monthly check from her late husbands railroad retirement system and her daughter received alimony.
One year ago, police found a human skull in the crawl space of the house where they were last seen alive.
Each of the 17 counts of forgery carries up to ten years in prison.
Adair says the judge hasn't set an extradition hearing yet.
