Man Accused Of Embezzling $600,000 From Uncle

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ A man is facing accusations that he embezzled more than $600,000 from his uncle. David L. Browning, 54, turned himself in Tuesday night and was booked into the Oklahoma County jail on seven counts of embezzlement and one count of financial exploitation of the elderly, spokesman Mark Myers said. He was released on $18,000 bail.

``This is the largest embezzlement case ever investigated by the Oklahoma County sheriff's office,'' Myers said.

Browning is accused of embezzling $639,000 from Charles Dew, 82. Browning became Dew's legal guardian when a judge ruled Dew incompetent in May 2002.

Authorities allege Browning wrote more than 300 checks to himself, his family and two family businesses, according to court papers.

In April 2005, Browning was terminated as Dew's legal guardian, but according to allegations made in court papers he continued to steal assets from Dew's estate.
