ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - A pain management physician who practiced in South Dakota for several years has been indicted after authorities accused her of falsely reporting at least $56,000 of wedding-related and other expenses as business costs.

An indictment filed in U.S. District Court in South Dakota charges Heloise Westbrook with impeding the administration of the Internal Revenue laws.

Authorities accuse Westbrook of filing corporate income tax returns with many entries identified as business expenses that were actually related to personal expenses to pay for her wedding.

The indictment states the IRS began auditing Westbrook in 2008.

Westbrook worked in Aberdeen for more than a decade before she moved to Kentucky to work at a Greenville hospital in 2014.

Westbrook didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment left at her office.
