The trial of a woman accused of stealing more than $100,000 from a group that flew World War II veterans to Washington D.C. has been delayed because of problems between her and her attorney.
The attorney for LaVeta Dianne Miller of Great Bend told a judge Monday that Miller had stopped communicating with him since her preliminary hearing in April. He asked to be removed from the case.
Miller said she hasn't worked since the preliminary hearing and has had trouble paying her bills and with her phone. After hearing the explanation, her attorney, Robert Anderson, agreed to stay on the case.
The Great Bend Tribune reports Anderson said he needed a continuance for the trial, which was scheduled for September. A new trial date was not set.
