DEFIANCE, Iowa (AP) - The state auditor’s office says it’s identified nearly $11,000 in improper spending by a western Iowa city clerk who’s now charged with theft.

The report released Tuesday by the office of State Auditor Mary Mosiman said Kristin Wagner used money from the town of Defiance’s bank account to buy personal items and pay some bills. The report says the disbursements were made from March 12, 2013, through April 30, 2015.

Online court records say Kristin Wagner was charged on April 27 with theft and has pleaded not guilty. Her Shelby County trial is scheduled to begin Jan. 12.
