MONROE, Wis. (AP) -- A former administrative secretary and bookkeeper is accused of stealing more than $850,000 over a 10-year period from a Wisconsin rehabilitation and nursing home where she worked.
Fifty-five-year-old Joyce Ziehli of Belleville was charged Tuesday with six felony counts of theft in a business setting.
The complaint says a review by a Madison accounting firm claimed Ziehli made hundreds of fraudulent financial transactions to steal from the New Glarus Home.
Ziehl worked for the home for 31 years before she was fired last January. Police say she's scheduled to make her initial court appearance next Monday.
The Wisconsin State Journal reports officials became suspicious of Ziehli's accounting methods last Jan. 25 after another bookkeeper discovered discrepancies.
