WICHITA, Kansas — A federal Judge has delayed the trial for a Kansas couple accused of stealing more than $1.5 million from a Wichita company that owns assisted living centers in Kansas and Missouri.
U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten set a new trial date for May 5 in the case of Brent and Lori Shyrock of Augusta. The couple had been set to go to trial Jan. 13 on four counts of mail fraud.
Their attorney asked for the delay in order to review a large amount of complicated accounting documents.
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.
