MCCOOK, Neb. (AP) - A 54-year-old Culbertson woman has changed her plea to guilty and is scheduled to be sentenced in August for embezzling more than $814,000 from a livestock auction company in McCook.

The McCook Gazette (https://bit.ly/1QDHzht ) reports that Trina Hoyt is set to be sentenced on Aug. 3 in Red Willow County District Court. Court records say she submitted her guilty plea on June 1. She’d pleaded not guilty to the same charge last month.

Hoyt is accused of writing 26 unauthorized checks on Tri-State Livestock Commission Co. accounts between January 2012 and December 2013 and depositing them into her own accounts.

Her former employer says Hoyt took more than $1.2 million between 2010 and 2013. Investigators did not include 2010 and 2011 in their probe, because of the statute of limitations.
