FRONTENAC, Kan. (AP) _ A woman has pleaded innocent to embezzling more than $74,000 from a Frontenac church.

Michelle Driskell Spigarelli, 43, is accused of using $74,027 from Sacred Heart Catholic Church to pay her personal bills. She pleaded innocent this week in U.S. District Court in Wichita to one count of mail fraud.

Spigrarelli's attorney, James Pratt, says his client has been going through a difficult time and plans to ask for understanding and forgiveness.

Crawford County Sheriff Sandy Horton says the investigation indicated that no one else was involved in the crime.
