OCEAN COUNTY, New Jersey (WPVI) -- A Camden County woman is accused of stealing close to $100,000 from her Grammy Award-winning estranged husband.

Prosecutors in Ocean County said 35-year-old Erin Seal of Lindenwold had ex-husband Manuel Seal's royalty checks forwarded to her.

She also allegedly used fake emails to support her story and had a relative cash the checks.

On Wednesday, Seal, accompanied by her attorney, surrendered herself to detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office Economic Crimes Unit.

She was processed and released on a summons pending a future court date.
