Re: A Welsh rugby fan dishonestly helped himself to £60,000 from the bank accounts of a close friend he met through their “shared love of the game”, a court heard.<br />
Graeme Prance, 53,  claims he became “like a son” to retired businessman Ken Elliott during their 35-year friendship watching rugby together.<br />
A jury heard Mr Elliott gave Prance Power of Attorney when he became ill and changed his will so his friend would inherit his £212,000 house in Cyncoed, Cardiff.<br />
But the prosecution say the expenditure on Mr Elliott’s three bank accounts “changed dramatically” soon after he gave his friend Power of Attorney.<br />
Kitchen fitter Prance denies four charges of fraud claiming the payments were all authorised by widower Mr Elliott who died in May 2016.<br />
Prosecutor Nick Gedge said: “The two men met socially through their shared love of rugby and had known each other for 35 years.<br />
“Mr Prance was virtually a daily visitor and was treated like a son by Mr Elliott who had given up on life after his wife died in 2008.
