WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge has set a trial date for a Kansas store owner accused of selling phony luxury goods imported from China.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren on Thursday scheduled the trial of 54-year-old Glenda Sue Morgan for July 2 in federal court in Wichita.

A three-count indictment handed down last month charges Morgan and her Wichita shop, The Fabulous Store LLC, with conspiracy and trafficking in counterfeit goods.

Prosecutors allege Morgan sold handbags, wallets, sunglasses and jewelry bearing trademark designs and brand names but not made by those companies. The luxury-name goods included Prada, Coach and Chanel, among others.

Prosecutors say a search warrant executed last month turned up about 400 counterfeit items that, if authentic, would have been valued at $130,000.
