WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A federal judge has dropped all charges against a California woman ensnared in the prosecution of a cargo theft scheme in Kansas.

U.S. District Judge Monti Belot granted Tuesday the government's request to dismiss the indictment against Larisa Nagapetian.

Her husband, Oganes Nagapetian, and his brother, Tigran Nagapetian, still face charges of conspiracy, identity theft and other crimes. All are from North Hollywood, Calif.

Prosecutors allege they tried to steal a semi-load of processed beef in November 2011 from the Tyson Fresh Meats plant in Holcomb by pretending to be legitimate freight haulers.

The U.S. Attorney's office says the government dismissed the charges against Larisa Nagapetian "in the interest of justice." Spokesman Jim Cross declined to elaborate, citing the pending case against other defendants.
