Questions are being raised after a Kansas City attorney charged with using a forged document to deny her father medical treatment posted a $1 million cash bond.

Susan Elizabeth Van Note has pleaded not guilty to forgery and first-degree murder.

Her father, 67-year-old William B. Van Note, and his companion, 59-year-old Sharon Dickson, were shot at their lake home in Sunrise Beach in October 2010. Dickson died at the scene, while the elder Van Note was hospitalized.

Authorities allege a forged durable power of attorney was used to persuade doctors to remove his life support. Charges haven't been filed in Dickson's death.

The Kansas City Star reports that Van Note previously filed for bankruptcy, and the trustee in the case wants to know where the bond money came from.
