TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Authorities say a couple has been accused of embezzling from a Tucson-area school that serves career and technical education students.

The Arizona Attorney General's Office announced Wednesday that Melinda Carpio and her husband Enrique Carpio have been indicted on charges of theft and fraudulent schemes.

State authorities say about $300,000 allegedly was embezzled from the Joint Technical Education District where Melinda Carpio was the accounting services manager.

The Pima County Sheriff's Office began an investigation after a JTED internal audit uncovered discrepancies between expenditures and vendor payments between December 2009 and October 2012.

Investigators say Melinda Carpio allegedly directed payments to her husband under the guise of fictitious vendors.

Authorities say the money allegedly was deposited in the couple's shared bank account.

Melinda Carpio was later fired by JTED.
