A 51-year-old Wabaunsee County woman is facing federal charges of embezzling more than $12,000 from the Biosecurity Research Institute at Kansas State University. Linda Kay Miller, of Alma, is accused of rerouting payments intended for the university. U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom claims Miller had access to checks made payable to the institute.
Miller has been indicted on three counts. Each carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison. If convicted, she could also be fined up to $250,000 for each charge.
