OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Federal authorities have accused a 44-year-old Scottsbluff woman of committing bank fraud while she was manager of a credit union.

The indictment filed last week lists six counts against Christine Darley, alleging fraud between August 2010 and June 12, 2012. She was manager of Panhandle Federal Credit Union at the time.

Darley’s husband, Phil Darley, told The Associated Press on Monday the allegations are not true and that his wife would fight the charges.

Court records contend she took credit union money and deposited it into her accounts there and at a local bank. Prosecutors say her actions resulted in a loss to the credit union of more than $200,000.

Her initial court appearance is scheduled for March 10 at U.S. District Court in Lincoln.
