WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) -- The attorney for a Wausau woman accused of stealing from her disabled sister says a plea deal has been reached with prosecutors.

Nancy Rodemeier is charged with embezzling $38,000 from her sister over a 10-year period to fund her gambling, drinking and smoking habits.

Defense attorney Jim Connell says the case should never have been criminally charged, because it was a dispute among family members.

Rodemeier was a legal guardian for her developmentally disabled sister, a 53-year-old woman who now lives in Amherst. A state-sponsored agency which provided protection for the disabled woman said it found discrepancies in her bank account.

Connell says Rodemeier was devoted to her sister and is devastated by the charges.
