Breaking: U.S. Marshals Evict Ruth Madoff

NEW YORK (CBS) U.S. Marshals have just taken control of Bernard and Ruth Madoff's posh $7 million Manhattan apartment.

Mrs. Madoff has been told to leave the home per a court-approved agreement.

Marshals will be changing the locks, but they do not plan to remove any items today, sources tell CBS News.

Ruth Madoff is the wife of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff, who was sentenced to 150 years in prison for masterminding a decades-long Ponzi scheme that swindled investors out of tens of billions of dollars.
