(SANDUSKY) -- A medical center that specializes in cancer says a Michigan woman charged with fraud never was a patient. Stephen Kroll is a lawyer for Cancer Treatment Centers of America. He says records show Sara Ylen made a phone call but got no care at a hospital in Zion, Illinois. Ylen's preliminary examination in Sanilac County was adjourned Tuesday afternoon and will continue on Friday, July 12 at 1:30 p.m. That day, a judge will determine whether there is probable cause to send the case to trial. The 38-year old is charged with a computer crime, health care fraud and false pretenses. Ylen claimed she'd been treated for cancer in Illinois and got hospice care at her home in Lexington. Mercy Hospice was paid just about $100,000 by Ylen's insurer. In a separate criminal case in St. Clair County, Ylen is awaiting trial on a charge of making a false report of rape.
