The earrings were a birthday present for Kunitzs wife, Maureen.The theft charges filed by police in Collier Township, where Kunitz lives with his wife and their children, grew out of the arson and insurance fraud investigation by the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives into the Sturgeon fire.Forsythe pleaded guilty in July to federal charges of malicious destruction of property by fire and wire fraud for burning the house, then filing fraudulent insurance claims for the contents, including some jewels she had allegedly stolen from another couple while also working as a nanny.The other couple told investigators that an 18-karat gold diamond necklace worth about $4,400 and a gold diamond stud earring worth more than $10,000 had been stolen from them.

Finkelstein has a blanket policy of not commenting to the media.U.S. District Judge Cathy Bissoon refused Finkelsteins request to allow Forsythes federal sentence to run concurrently to whatever sentence she receives next month saying the theft victims deserve their own justice, so to speak, and the court will not intervene here.However, the county judge could still order that sentence to run concurrent to the federal sentence. If that happens, Forsythe would get credit for serving both terms simultaneously, instead of serving them one after the other.Forsythes public defender in the Allegheny County theft case didnt immediately return a call for comment Tuesday.---This story has been corrected to say earrings were sold to jewelry stores rather than jury stores.
