THE family of two pensioners whose foster daughter stole thousands of pounds from their bank accounts feel they have justice, police have said.

Madina Kamara-Aspin transferred more than £30,000 from her dead foster mother Margaret Aspin’s account into two of her own accounts.

Portsmouth Crown Court heard Kamara-Aspin, 34, of Stockheath Road, Havant, took the £33,473 from Mrs Aspin’s account. She also took £14,000 from Eric Aspin’s account.

She was found guilty by a jury after a trial of one count of theft and one of fraud by abusing her position as carer for Mr Aspin.

Detective Constable Rebecca Brown said: ‘It has been a difficult trial for the family given that both aggrieved are now deceased, but the family feel they have some closure and justice for them.’

Kamara-Aspin’s foster father died before the case went to trial.

She is due to be sentenced next month.

The defendant told police she had permission to take the money from Mr Aspin.
