DALLAS (AP) - A federal grand jury has added a former Collin Street Bakery’s controller’s wife to an indictment that accused him of embezzling nearly $17 million from the famed Texas fruitcake bakery.

The Dallas grand jury returned a 22-count superseding indictment Wednesday against Sandy and Kay Jenkins of Corsicana.

Sandy Jenkins already pleaded not guilty to 10 mail-fraud counts. The new indictment adds three money-laundering counts against him and charges him and his wife with a money-laundering conspiracy count, six counts of aiding and abetting money laundering and two of making a false statement to a financial institution.

The former executive is accused of writing almost 900 fraudulent checks on the bakery account from 2005 through June 2013 to support a lavish lifestyle.

A message with their defense attorney Wednesday wasn’t returned.
