Evaluation Ordered In Kansas Honor Flight Thefts

KSAL StaffAugust 21, 2013

A judge has ordered a psychiatric evaluation for the woman charged with more than $100,000 from a group that flew World War II veterans to Washington D.C.

LaVeta Dawn Miller of Great Bend has pleaded not guilty to two counts of theft by deception. Prosecutors allege she stole about $110,000 from the Honor Flight program.

Judge Dale Urbanek has ordered Miller to be evaluated at a Great Bend counseling center. That evaluation will determine if Miller is sent to Larned State Security Hospital for further evaluation.

Miller’s trial has been delayed pending the evaluation.

She once led Central Prairie Honor Flights, which raised nearly $1.2 million for veterans’ trips between 2008 and 2012, when the flights ended and Miller was charged.
