Colorado woman accused of faking cancer

Police say a woman scammed people out of more than $30,000 by posing as a cancer patient.

A grand jury indictment says 35-year-old Jennifer Stover worked for Exempla Healthcare at the Collier Hospice in Wheat Ridge when police say she fraudulently accepted the money.

Stover is accused of telling co-workers over the past few years that she had uterine cancer and was undergoing experimental treatments.

She was indicted earlier this month by a grand jury on theft of $20,000 or more and charitable fraud.

She turned herself in on Tuesday and later posted a $5,000 bond.

Stover is due in court later this month.
