Funeral Home Owners Indicted on Felony Charges
By West Kentucky Star Staff
BENTON, KY - The owners of a Benton funeral home have been indicted on felony and misdemeanor fraud, forgery and theft counts.

A Marshall County grand jury indicted owners of Filbeck, Cann and King Funeral Home Tim and Becky King Tuesday on several counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, insurance fraud, and theft by unlawful taking. 

Kentucky Department of Insurance investigators served search warrants on May 1 at the funeral home and seized documents and electronic files related to the case while investigating complaints from customers who allegedly paid the funeral home to buy insurance policies that were never actually purchased.

Commonwealth Attorney Mark Blankenship says the Kings turned themselves in on Wednesday. Bail has not yet been set.
