MARSHFIELD, WI (WTAQ) - A Marshfield man is accused of taking over $50,000 from his elderly father, and spending most of it on foreign lotteries.

74-year-old Delbert Weiler is free on a signature bond. He's scheduled to appear in Wood County Circuit Court next Tuesday on a felony charge of theft from a business setting.

According to prosecutors, Delbert Weiler had the power of attorney for his 96-year-old father -- and he apparently thought he could take $6,000 a year from one of his father's accounts as reimbursement for work he had done for him.

A woman told police last fall that she thought somebody was exploiting her father -- and her brother had allegedly put large amounts of money into an account for his own business.

Officials said $30,000 to $40,000 of his father's money was entered in lotteries in Australia and Nigeria.
