OXFORD, Miss. (AP) — A Shannon woman has been indicted on charges that she attempted to defraud businesses by selling ads in a fictitious publication.

Prosecutors allege 49-year-old Veronica Rice told victims the ads would be placed in a publication distributed to military personnel and their families.

She was indicted this past week by a federal grand jury on four counts of wire fraud.

The indictment says Rice and others conspired to sell the ads for the non-existent CNFR Guide.

Court documents say Rice and others used fictitious names to sell the ads.

She has pleaded not guilty to the allegations.
