GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - The former president of Stone Child College and her husband face trial next week on charges alleging they conspired to use federal money to overpay a construction company for work on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation in exchange for kickbacks totaling just over $242,000.

Melody Henry and Frank Gregory Henry, who was the college’s facilities department manager, each pleaded not guilty on Feb. 10 to conspiracy to embezzle federal funds, theft from an Indian tribal government receiving federal funds, accepting a bribe and theft from an Indian tribal organization.

U.S. District Judge Brian Morris scheduled their trial for Feb. 17 in Great Falls.

Prosecutors allege the Henrys conspired with Hunter Burns Construction, awarding about $530,000 in federal contracts in exchange for $242,000 in kickbacks between September 2010 and December 2012.
