Investigators say Pace, along with his mother Dorothy Allen, pretended to run a home business called "Better Choice for seniors."

Records show they would claim to be using the woman's money for groceries and other necessities, but actually spent nearly $100,000 on items like a Corvette, even though they never gave her the title and knew she couldn't drive.

Allan turned herself in last week and is out on bond.
