According to investigators, 45-year-old Mitchell Upchurch got about $100 from checks he wrote in Mary Cabe's name.
Cabe was found dead of a drug overdose last March on a utility road outside of Dunn. She disappeared a few weeks before that after wrecking her car.
Investigators said Upchurch may have lived with Cabe.
