WETUMKA, Okla. (AP) – A funeral home director in Wetumka has been charged with felony embezzlement from prepaid funeral home plans.

Oklahoma Insurance Commissioner John Doak announced Monday that Donald Williamson allegedly took nearly $75,000 from 28 families who created the prepaid funeral trusts.

An attorney for Williamson did not immediately return a phone call for comment.

Doak says Williamson is owner of Williamson-Spradlin Funeral Home in Wetumka and deposited payments for the prepaid funeral plans into his funeral home’s bank account rather than into a separate trust account as is required by law.

Williamson faces felony counts of embezzlement and violation of the Prepaid Funeral Act.
