Ohio mom accused of faking cancer for young son

Associated Press

NEWARK, OHIO: Authorities say a central Ohio woman faked a cancer diagnosis for her 4-year-old son and shaved his head in a scheme that convinced him and other relatives he was dying and bilked people out of donations.

Court records allege the boy was taken to a hospital for symptoms such as seizures. He underwent blood tests, more than 150 hours of inpatient monitoring and other testing that found no problems.

His mother, 31-year-old Emily Creno of Utica, is charged with felony child endangerment. The Advocate in Newark reports Creno didn’t comment in court as her bond was set Wednesday at $50,000. Court records listed no attorney for her.

The newspaper says a prosecutor wouldn’t discuss the possibility of more charges. Authorities say the alleged hoax began late last year.
