WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A federal judge has scheduled an October trial for a Topeka resident whose true identity is unknown to the courts.

The woman is charged with producing a false document, aggravated identity theft and misuse of a Social Security number. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren on Tuesday scheduled her trial for Oct. 30.

Court records identify her only with an acronym that means ``first name unknown, last name unknown.'' The Department of Homeland Security has filed a notice saying she may be an illegal immigrant.

On Monday, a federal magistrate judge concluded the woman is a flight risk and ordered her to remain in custody. U.S. Magistrate Judge Kenneth Gale said the evidence indicates that the woman's true identity is either unknown, or is different from what she provided court services.
