Caretaker charged for possessing deceased woman’s property

A woman hired as a caretaker was arrested for allegedly having property from a woman who recently passed away.

Tonya L. Henry, 49, of 104 Buffalo Trace, was charged Monday by Winchester Police for receiving stolen property.

According to court documents, the theft was reported to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office of several items from a residence on Delaplain Road.

On Monday, Winchester Police went to interview the suspect at her residence.

According to the arrest citation, detectives later executed a search warrant at Henry’s residence and recovered several items from the victim’s home including antique silverware and several pieces of jewelry.

Henry reportedly told police she traded “dope” for the items, and it was merely a coincidence that she was the victim’s caretaker.

Police said there are several items that were not recovered including wedding rings and two firearms. Two witnesses reported seeing Henry with the firearms, though, police said.

Henry was lodged in the Clark County Detention Center, but has been released. She is due to be arraigned in Clark District Court Sept. 28.
