A Monroe County caregiver accused of stealing thousands of dollars from an elderly patient is also heading to trial.

Jeanette Strausser has waived her right to a preliminary hearing.

Investigators say the Saylorsburg woman was caring for an 82-year-old woman in Paradise Township.

They say Strausser swiped the woman's ATM card to withdraw about $70,000 from her account.
