GREAT BEND, Kan. (AP) -- A Great Bend woman charged with stealing from a group that flew World War II veterans to Washington D.C. had her preliminary hearing continued until April 10.
LaVeta Miller is charged with two counts of theft by deception for allegedly stealing more than $100,000 from the Central Prairie Honor Flights program.
After a day of testimony Wednesday, the preliminary hearing was continued until April because of the attorneys' scheduling conflicts.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/YeZDgD ) the program raised nearly $1.2 million to take 1,100 WWII vets to Washington. But Miller canceled two Honor Flights in June because she said there was a shortage of funds. Central Prairie Honor Flights was disbanded around the time Miller was fired last July 1.
Miller was released from jail on a $20,000 bond.
