TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A 51-year-old woman has admitted embezzling from Kansas State University's Biosecurity Research Institute while working as an officer manager.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Alma resident Linda Kay Miller pleaded guilty Monday to three counts of interstate transportation of fraudulently altered securities.

Miller worked from August 2007 to January 2013 at the institute on the Manhattan campus. The institute receives grants for infectious disease research focused on threats to plant, animal and human health.

Miller admitted altering three checks received by the institute and depositing the funds into a personal bank account.

She agreed in her plea to pay a money judgment of more than $16,000. She could also be fined and given prison time at her sentencing, scheduled for January.
