SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A Kansas doctor who formerly worked at a San Antonio military medical center has been sentenced to six years in prison for Army contract fraud.

A warrant has been issued for ex-Army physician Heidi L. Webster of Manhattan, Kansas.

Webster failed to show up for sentencing Friday in federal court in San Antonio. A judge also ordered Webster to repay nearly $614,000.

Webster and retired Army Master Sgt. Lawrence Peter Fenti of New Braunfels (BRAHN’-felz) pleaded guilty in 2014 to conspiracy and bribery counts.

Fenti formerly was chief administrator for Brooke Army Medical Center’s radiology department, where Webster worked. Prosecutors say the pair provided false information to fraudulently secure military contracts for two Kansas companies run by Webster.

Fenti last September was sentenced to four years in prison.
