TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A former Topeka executive has been sentenced to three years in federal prison for scheming to steal more than $2 million in Medicaid funds.

The U.S. Attorney's office for Kansas says in a release Monday that 44-year-old Jason Sellers of Lyndon also was ordered to pay $2.08 million in restitution.

He pleaded guilty in October to one count of wire fraud for diverting Medicaid funds to his own use when he was chief financial officer of Kansas Health Solutions.

Prosecutors said Sellers fraudulently billed Kansas Health Solutions for information technology services performed by a fake business. Some of the stolen money was used to build and furnish a $375,000, 3,755-square-foot home on 11 acres in Lyndon.
