A jury has found a Kalona woman guilty of insurance fraud, but acquitted her husband on a similar charge. Roger and Lynne Holdeman had been charged with three counts of insurance fraud each for allegedly trying to obtain two, $1-million life insurance policies and a $75,000 policy on a former resident of an Iowa City nursing home they helped run. The jury in Washington County found Lynne Holdeman guilty on all three counts, and Roger Holdeman not guilty. The Holdemans reportedly invited the resident to move into their private home in 2005. At the time, Roger Holdeman was business manager and Lynne Holdeman was director of nursing at Greenwood Manor. They left those posts in the next several years.
