A couple accused of stealing more than $1.5 million from a Wichita company that owns assisted living centers in Kansas and Missouri is expected to plead to charges later this month.
Brent Shryock of Augusta had been scheduled to go to trial Tuesday on mail fraud charges, but notified the court the day before it was to begin that he wanted to change his plea. His hearing is May 13.
A court notation Wednesday shows his wife, Lori Shryock, also plans to change her plea. Her hearing is May 14.
The indictment alleges the crimes were committed while Brent Shryock was employed as information systems director for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America. He was in charge of purchasing equipment.
Prosecutors say the couple created four fictitious companies to submit fraudulent invoices.
