LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A southern Indiana woman has pleaded guilty to theft charges after police say she faked a brain tumor.

Teryn Applegate was arrested last summer by the Harrison County Sheriff's Department.

Officers say the 27-year-old lied about having a brain tumor and collected donations for fake medical expenses.

She's scheduled to be sentenced in March.
