VISTA (CNS) - A preliminary hearing was scheduled to begin Monday for a woman accused of stealing more than $1 million worth of fixtures from her repossessed Olivenhain mansion, which neighbors dubbed the "Monster House."
Suzy Brown allegedly stole the fixtures from the 16,000-square-foot home she built in 2006 to use as a high-end drug rehabilitation business. Brown, a retired electrical engineer, lost the 15-bedroom, 17-bathroom home after neighbor complaints prevented the business from getting off the ground.
A judge will decide at the conclusion of the preliminary hearing whether the prosecution has enough evidence to proceed to trial.
Brown was first charged with grand theft and felony vandalism in late 2009, but those charges were dismissed in July 2010, when a judge ruled that a deed presented by the San Diego County District Attorney's Office to show the bank owned the home was not an official record.
A month later, prosecutors refiled the same charges against Brown, citing new deeds.
