GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

The housekeeper of an elderly Greenville couple was arrested for a second time by federal agents Thursday, according to detention center records.

Deputies said 78-year-old Gary Wells and his wife, 77-year-old Helen, were found stabbed to death in their Terramont Drive home Oct. 3. They said the couple's bodies were found by their housekeeper, Shirley Rogers.

About a week later, deputies arrested Rogers and charged her with bank card and identity fraud. They said Rogers used Helen Wells' bank card without her permission.

During an interview with FOX Carolina about the local charges, Rogers denied stealing money from the Wells. She said she would never have done anything to the couple, who has helped her so much over the last five years.

"I wouldn't take nothing from nobody, when I could go ask her for something and she would give it to me," Rogers said. "And she is going to get it back, cause I'm going to work (for them)."

The criminal complaint from the United States District Court said Rogers is accused of theft/possession of stolen mail, unlawful use of a means of identification of another person and access device fraud.

Friday, Fox Carolina spoke with Rogers about these charges. She said they are similar to the ones she faces in Greenville County, regarding Helen Wells' complaint in September, that unauthorized transactions were made with her bank card.

"Every time they try something it don't work. I'm right back home. I'm tired of them harassing me. Find someone else to harass. Find out who killed them. That's what they need to be doing, instead of harassing me everyday about the damn card," said Rogers on Friday.

Deputies have said that Rogers is not a suspect in the Wells' deaths.
