A 56-year-old northwest suburban woman is in police custody, charged with criminal neglect and financial exploitation of her own father.

Paulette Rhody, of Hanover Park, was arrested on Tuesday by Mount Prospect police. Officers found Rhody's 81-year-old father alone and in need of medical assistance during a well-being check at his Mount Prospect home.

Rhody's arrest came after she was identified as her father's primary caregiver. She's being held on $50,000 bond.
