Man accused of theft from dead woman

SAN ANTONIO, TX Kevin Mathis, formerly with Investment Professionals Inc., was released Tuesday on an unsecured bond after saying he could not afford an attorney.

Mathis is charged with four counts of mail fraud.

An indictment alleges Mathis managed an account belonging to Dominga G. Flores, who died Sept. 10, 1994. He allegedly in 2006 secured and began using a debit card in her name, having the financial statements mailed to a post office box he opened.

The San Antonio Express-News reports the company later determined the funds were missing.

Mail fraud carries a punishment of 20 years in prison.
