Owensboro man pleads guilty to defrauding thousands from couple

Posted: Updated:

Federal authorities say an Owensboro man pleads guilty to defrauding more than $200,000 from an elderly Daviess County couple.  

Authorities say back in 2010, 49-year-old Robert Gray talked the couple into investing in his start up construction company and told them they were funding projects in Madisonville and Owensboro.  

Investigators say there were no such projects and that Gray bought himself two vehicles with the money.

Gray agreed to pay the money back and will be sentenced in May.
