So now will she be charged with anything? NZOOM: "An Ohio woman who said she lost the winning ticket for a $US162 million ($240 million) lottery prize that was awarded to someone else admitted it was a case of wishful thinking.
Elicia Battle, 40, made the tearful admission to reporters and said she was dropping a lawsuit filed earlier this week to block the money from being given to the woman who turned in the lucky ticket.
She said she really did buy a ticket and lost it but made her claim mostly because she wanted to win. 'I apologize,' she said."
