EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A January federal trial is set for a slain U.S. marshal’s former fiancee accused of draining thousands of dollars in proceeds from a charity golf tournament held in the marshal’s honor.

Pamela Robtoy of Belleville has pleaded not guilty to an August indictment’s charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and making a false statement to federal agents.

Robtoy is accused of stealing funds from last year’s John Perry Golf Benefit Tournament in Fairview Heights. Proceeds were to go to charities that offer financial support to families of law enforcers and emergency responders killed on the job.

Perry was fatally shot in the head in 2011 while serving a warrant at the St. Louis home of former convict Carlos Boles.

Boles, after wounding two other law enforcers, died in the shootout.
