Woman accused of wheeling dead 'uncle' into bank to sign loan

BRASÍLIA - The woman arrives at the bank pushing a man in a wheelchair. His eyes are closed; his head lolls wildly.

"Uncle Paulo, are you listening?" Érika de Souza Vieira Nunes asks. "You need to sign it. If you don't sign it, there's no way. I can't sign it for you."

But Paulo Roberto Braga doesn't respond, a video recorded Tuesday shows.

The 68-year-old man is dead.

In an incident that has gone viral here, police say Nunes, 42, took Braga's body to a bank branch in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday afternoon to secure a loan of about $3,250.
