Judge Michael Holbrook sentenced Kelly Dale Vokas, 43, to the maximum penalty possible in the case.
During the defendant’s sentencing hearing, a sheriff’s deputy testified that authorities received a 911 hang-up call around 3:20 p.m. on October 18, 2020, and responded to the Prairie Township home of the two victims, John Blanc, 77, and Susan Castore, 75.
At the residence, the deputy said he saw Vokas through a window putting items, including a checkbook, ID cards, and a bag of coins, in her purse before attempting to flee the property.

At her sentencing, a crying Vokas said she wasn’t in her “right state of mind” and apologized. “I did not react in the manner which I should have,” she said.
“How can a human being be so cruel and take such evil actions towards an elderly couple that at many times had showed you kindness,” Blanc’s daughter, Julie Blanc, asked Vokas at the hearing.
