PITTSBURGH – The former nanny of Pittsburgh Penguins player Chris Kunitz has been charged with stealing diamond earrings from his home, then selling them to a jewelry store.
WPXI-TV first reported the new theft charges filed Wednesday. The investigation of 26-year-old Andrea Forsythe began when her rental home burned down in June.
She's already charged with setting that fire and filing false insurance claims to collect on jewelry lost in the fire. One claim was for the earrings, which prompted the theft charges filed this week by police in Collier Township, where Kunitz lives.
Online court records don't list an attorney for Forsythe on the theft charges. Her federal public defender in the arson case did not immediately return a call for comment Friday.
