Bookkeeper accused of stealing from Sundluns

A bookkeeper accused of stealing from deceased former Rhode Island governor Bruce Sundlun and his wife was arraigned in Kent County Superior Court in Warwick. Teresa Roby was arraigned Friday on three counts larceny over $1,500, two counts of forgery, and other charges. Roby is accused of taking $21,000 from Sundlun, his wife, Soozie, and her East Greenwich photography business. Roby has denied the charges, and after she was arrested told WJAR-TV in July that she was authorized to use the money. Sundlun, who was governor from 1991 to 1995, died in 2011.
