SHE-DEVIL!

Angel-voiced gospel singer helps preacher rob old man

-

AGREEDY gospel singer is facing 70 years in the slammer for helping a money-hungry minister fleece an 88-year-old man out of $200,000!

She-devil Doraine Reed, 60, and Stratford Baptist Church’s now-disgraced Rev. Robert Genevicz cooked up an unholy plot to steal every last cent Trumbull, Conn., resident Arthur Devack had, authoritie­s charge.

Reed and Genevicz convinced Arthur to hand over his money and property to the angel-voiced vixen before he died in June 2010. He also bought her a $51,000 Hummer SUV!

Reed was working as the elderly man’s caregiver when she recruited the predatory pastor to drive Arthur to see a lawyer.

Amazingly, the demonic deacon managed to get power of attorney over Arthur’s estate. Two wills were drafted, leaving Arthur’s family with nothing and making Reed his sole heir, according to court testimony.

The gold-digging schemers then got a reverse mortgage on Arthur’s home and took out $225,000 in equity, which Reed spent on herself, according

to testimony.

After Arthur passed away, Genevicz continued to cash checks from the deceased man’s credit union account - but

police were alerted.

Arthur’s daughter testified that after her father died, she asked Reed for her father’s wallet.

“The wallet was filled with credit cards. My father never had any credit cards!” says Cathy Devack.

A probate judge later invalidate­d the two wills.

Reed didn’t testify at her trial — but she originally claimed Arthur gave her everything out of gratitude. In a statement to the judge, she insisted: “I didn’t kill the golden goose.”

But a jury found her guilty — and the choir girl raised her voice in anger, shouting: “This is not over!” as she was hauled off in cuffs.

Genevicz, 67, has confessed to his role in the scheme. He claims Reed was a Lolita who seduced him into committing his crimes — but he’s also charged with stealing about $400,000 from a retired 71-year-old schoolteac­her.

He’s facing 60 years in prison. His partner in crime will be sentenced in December.
