John Potter, a decorated World War II vet, just wants to keep living in the house he built himself over half a century ago. But if his daughter Janice Cottrill gets her way, the 91-year-old will be evicted from his Zaleski, Ohio home next month.
It all started in 2004, when Potter fell ill and he and his wife, since deceased, gave Cottrill power of attorney over their affairs, as well as over Joe, Potter's 63-year-old autistic son who had been living at home since birth.
In 2010, in a bid to end the legal challenges brought against them by Potter, the Cottrills used their power of attorney to transfer the deed to Potter's house to themselves.
Buoyed by victory, the Cottrills then proceeded to up the ante — ordering Potter out of the house.
Fraley, meanwhile, is attempting to keep Potter put by raising funds online in the hopes of buying the house from her mom and stepdad.
Though she hasn't spoken to her mom in two years, Fraley is still willing to defend her actions.
"People have commented that my mother is 'evil', but I always say she's a human too," the 35-year-old told ABC News. "Do I think she deserves the money? No, but my grandfather deserves to stay in his home as long as he possibly can. If he wants to leave, it should be his decision."
The eviction hearing has been set for June 12th — almost exactly three weeks after Potter turns 92.
