    A 75-year-old Virginia woman has been returned to upstate New York to face charges stemming from the theft of thousands of dollars and a vehicle from a now-deceased senior citizen.

    State police say Treva Wright of Roanoke, Va., was extradited to Wyoming County, N.Y., on Monday and charged with felony grand larceny and a misdemeanor offense of New York's general obligations law.

    Troopers say that between May and June 2011, Wright scammed $17,000 and a vehicle from an elderly man living in the rural town of Warsaw.

    Last July, Wright returned to Virginia and was taken into custody on an arrest warrant, but she fought extradition until a governor's warrant resulted in her return to western New York.

    She's being held in the county jail on $10,000 bail. It couldn't be determined if she had a lawyer.
