Judge delays trial of Kansas store owner

WICHITA, Kansas (AP) – A federal judge is giving a Wichita store owner more time to work out a plea deal with the government over accusations she sold fake luxury goods.

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren on Tuesday pushed back the trial of Glenda Sue Morgan to Aug. 27 at the request of the parties.

Morgan had been scheduled to go on trial July 2 on an indictment charging her and The Fabulous Store LLC with conspiracy and trafficking in counterfeit goods.

The judge found more time was needed to prepare for trial. He also noted plea negotiations are ongoing for a possible pretrial resolution.

Prosecutors allege Morgan sold handbags, wallets, sunglasses and jewelry bearing trademark designs and brand names but not made by those companies.
