HOLTON, Kan. (AP) -- A northeast Kansas prosecutor says she expects to reach a plea agreement with a woman accused of stealing $16,000 from the Jackson County agency where she worked.

KNZA-AM reports (http://bit.ly/1eQfOvI ) that 40-year-old Janette Fund, of Delia, waived her preliminary hearing Thursday and was bound over for arraignment in November. County Attorney Shawna Miller says a plea agreement is likely.

Fund was arrested in September and faces 90 counts each of theft and entering false accounting information. She worked from April 2011 to July of this year for the county's Noxious Weed, Landfill and Recycling Department.

The Jackson County sheriff says Fund was caught in July with missing cash that should have been deposited in the agency's accounts. The thefts allegedly went on for two years.
