WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A judge has begun contempt proceedings against a Haysville nurse convicted in a moneymaking conspiracy linked to 68 overdose deaths.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot on Friday ordered Linda Schneider to show why she should not be held in civil contempt for refusing to obey the court's orders. Prosecutors say she failed to sell a villa in Acapulco and bring back to the United States money in a Mexican bank account to pay a $1.27 million forfeiture judgment.

Defense attorney Jim Pratt declined comment.

Linda Schneider and her physician husband, Stephen Schneider, were convicted in 2010 of unlawfully prescribing drugs, fraud and money laundering. He is serving 30 years in prison, she is serving 33 years.

If found in contempt, the court can order her to serve consecutive sentences.
