Woman accused of faking child’s death to collect insurance


A woman who is accused of faking her child’s death to collect life insurance will have two more months to build her case.

Amberlynn Jessica Arce has been charged with falsifying information on a family service member’s group life insurance claim between May and June 2018.

According to the federal complaint filed against her, she falsely reported that the stillborn death of her child happened on May 9th, 2018.

District Court Judge Michael Bordallo granted a motion for a two-month continuance of the case to allow the defense to prepare themselves in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As part of the continuance, the speedy trial deadline has been delayed until October 28th.
