Kevin Kregger, 45, an Owosso funeral home director, had the first of two pre-exam conferences on Wednesday, July 15. A second pre-exam will be at 2 p.m. July 21 with no witnesses before Judge Ward Clarkson. The following week at 2 p.m. July 29 he will again appear before Clarkson and witnesses will be called.

Kregger was arraigned July 2 and charged with two counts of felony attempt of larceny in a building –

allegedly stealing from an elderly woman’s estate after her death, a maximum two-year high-court misdemeanor. A plea of not guilty was entered and he was released on personal recognizance bond.

Kregger allegedly sold – through an auction company – the contents of an elderly widow’s home and other possessions following the widow’s death in August 2011. He reportedly had befriended the widow who transferred ownership of her home to Kregger through a quit-claim deed and gave him power of attorney, which allows a person to make decisions on behalf of another individual.

Clinton County Prosecutor Charles Sherman was assigned the case by the state attorney general’s office.
