ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

A husband and wife from Allentown, accused of stealing from a local philanthropist, have pleaded guilty to theft.

Hassan Carmon entered his plea Tuesday on the heels of wife Shawnta Carmon's guilty plea Monday.

Both were charged with stealing money from the late philanthropist Linny Fowler between 2008 and 2012.

Police said the couple told Fowler they needed money for medical bills, but then spent it on a lavish lifestyle. Both will be sentenced in mid-November.
