"Today’s result has brought a satisfactory conclusion to the first stage of what has proven to be a very difficult investigation.
"As the victim was unable to give evidence, it had to be proved by other means and credit for this must go to the investigating officer, Detective Constable Rachel Graham.
"Mr and Mrs Reeve took full advantage of a vulnerable lady and have spent her money entirely for their own benefit, which has left the victim with little left. We will now commence an investigation to recover the proceeds of the crime."
