Posted: Updated:
NEW CANAAN -

New information has been released about one of the New Canaan lunch ladies accused of stealing nearly a half million dollars from their jobs.

Marie Wilson has been in trouble with the law before.

In 2014, she was accused of assaulting and harassing another food service employee.

The jury later sided with her.

Wilson and her sister, Joanne Pascarelli, were arrested over the weekend for allegedly stealing from two New Canaan schools.

They are due in court later this month.
