CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A Charleston-area woman is facing federal charges she stole over $1,000 in social security benefits from a dead person.

Laura Beth Dupree was indicted on a charge of theft of government property on Tuesday. The indictment does not provide many details into the allegations, but states they began in June 2009 and continue through June this year. 

Investigators say Dupree "willfully and knowingly did embezzle and convert to her use benefits of the Social Security Administration."

Dupree is scheduled to appear in federal court in Charleston on Sept. 24 for arraignment.
