TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A former employee at Kansas State University's Biosecurity Research Institute has been sentenced to 60 days in federal prison for embezzling research funds.

The U.S. Attorney's office says 51-year-old Linda Kay Miller must also pay $14,000 in restitution under the sentence she received Friday. She had pleaded guilty in October.

Miller, of Alma, worked from August 2007 to January 2013 at the institute on the Manhattan campus. The institute receives grants for infectious disease research focused on threats to plant, animal and human health.

In her plea, Miller admitted altering three checks received by the institute and depositing the money into her personal bank account.
