A Chicago couple accused of scamming nuns in Wisconsin out of more than $800,000 will be extradited to Milwaukee.According to an FBI affidavit, Angela Martin-Mulu and Edward Bosire posed as destitute Kenyan refugees. They first visited the Pewaukee Monastery of Carmelite nuns in December 2004 and allegedly told the nuns they were brother and sister, homeless and would be killed if they were deported to Kenya.

The nuns gave the couple cash and checks over a three-year period.

Sister Mary Agnes says the money came from the nuns' health fund.
