A heartbroken son has branded his father’s partner ‘nasty’ after she stole more than £100,000 from him.

The manipulative Jean Stone, 79, cheated dementia sufferer Fred Pullman out of thousands of pounds over four years.

The pensioner systematically drained Fred’s bank accounts in the final years of his life as he battled the disease at their home in Gussage St Michael, Dorset.

A judge ruled last week that Stone and her grandson, Robert Warner, “cynically and systematically” stole his life savings to “line their own pockets.”

She was sentenced to 18 months for her role at Bournemouth Crown Court while her grandson failed to appear at the hearing.

Fred’s devastated son Graham, 67, has branded Stone “evil” for what she did to his father and hopes she “rots in prison”.

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “What she did to my father is beyond words – she is nothing but evil.

“She planned the whole thing and within two years the money my father had accumulated through years of hard work was stolen.

“She pretended to take care of dad, but in reality she wormed his way into dad’s life with the sole intention of taking all the money as his health was deteriorating.

“This woman ruined the last few years of my father’s life and she robbed me of my inheritance – I can’t imagine what kind of person would do something so despicable to a vulnerable old man.

“I don’t care if she rots in prison.”

Graham became even more suspicious when Jean tried to get him to agree that the family home should be divided between himself and Jean’s own daughter, Christine.

He discovered that the phone bill had not been paid and contacted social services, who assured him there was nothing to worry about after a visit.

But then he contacted police after debt collectors contacted him to say his father had taken out a £10,000 loan and no repayments had been made.

After Fred’s dementia worsened, he had to be placed in a nursing home, Jean never visited him and didn’t even attend his funeral when he died in June 2015.

Widower Fred first met Jean in early 2009 after a chance meeting at a luncheon club near the family home, and within weeks she had moved into the family’s three-bedroom semi-detached house.

But Graham, who lives in Poole, Dorset, quickly began to suspect Jean didn’t have his father’s well-being at heart.

Graham and his wife, Sandra, visited Fred weekly to shop and were reassured that the money was taken care of.

He said: “Father explained that Jean was a friend he met at the Luncheon Club and would look after him for the time being – but she never moved out and sold her own house.

For my sake, she can rot in prison.

“A year later, Jean asked us to visit and shop only every two weeks or when asked to sit with Dad when she was taking her daughter out.

“In December 2013, I broke my hip after a fall and couldn’t come because my recovery took a long time.

“During this time, Jean seems to have stopped looking after dad and he was walking around the village in his underwear or nightwear after she left him alone.

“On one of those trips, a neighbor called social services and they pulled him out of the house for his own safety. He was dirty, his clothes weren’t clean, and the whole house stank.”

Neighbors who knew Fred are still wavering from the conviction, with one saying the pensioner had “retired”.

They added: “She was a particularly nasty piece of work and no one really had much time for her – and her attitude was probably driven by the fact that she stole from him.

“Fred was always careful with his money and didn’t spend anything expensive.

“It is despicable that someone who should be caring for a vulnerable person should rob them of all their life savings.

“She deserves everything that has come to her, even if it means dying in prison.

“I know she is old and frail, but the law is the law and she is answering for her crime.”

Another neighbor said: “You think back and wonder if there’s anything anyone could have done to stop a crime like this – but in Fred’s later years they never really had much to do in the village.

“If we had known she stole all his money, we would have said something.”

The three bedroom house on Manor Road, Gussage St Michael sold for £225,000 in 2016.

After Fred’s death, Graham was finally allowed to vacate the house after the council gave Jean a new home and discovered that everything of value had been sold.

They also found two stub checkbooks that contained evidence of large withdrawals and who they were made out to.

He added: “We had bank statements and these showed his accounts had been emptied. This appears to have happened within a year.

“Then a neighbor called us to say that Jean was now burning all the paperwork, so we contacted the police.

“During the time that father was in the homes, Jean did not visit him or even ask about his health, nor did she attend his funeral.

“She stayed at her father’s house for several months to cover her tracks and during that time she stopped paying bills and tried to put them in my name, saying I was the owner of the house.

“He would never take out a loan as he has always been very careful with money – the only loan in his life was his mortgage.

“We contacted the bank but they didn’t want to speak to us as Jean had issued a power of attorney.”

Graham was not paid for this interview but The Sun has agreed to donate £200 to Dementia UK. My dad’s evil partner cheated him out of £100,000 and let him walk the streets in his pants… I hope she rots in jail
