WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A senior airman in the Kansas Air National Guard is accused of lying about where she lives so she could fraudulently collect nearly $55,000 in travel reimbursements.

The U.S. Attorney's office announced Wednesday that 28-year-old Eledria J. Bradley is charged with one count of wire fraud.

The indictment alleges that Bradley changed her address to the Phoenix suburb of Chandler, Ariz., when she was deployed to McConnell Air Force Base. The base is located in Wichita, where she lives.

Prosecutors said that by changing her address, Bradley was outside the commuting distance for McConnell. The indictment says she received benefits she wasn't entitled to from 2009 through this month.

Bradley did not have an attorney Wednesday, and there was no phone listed in her name in Wichita.
