Two men are in jail Friday morning in connection with an elder abuse case in Corcoran.

Detectives say 70-year-old Myrtle Reid had been taking large amounts of money from an elderly 84-year-old man, and using the money to go gambling.

Corcoran police have also arrested 40-year-old Diane Cabral. She's also accused of taking large amounts of money from the same elderly victim to pay for legal issues and gambling.

Both suspects have been booked into the Kings County Jail.
