Woman embezzled $2.7 million

Melissa Day Morton of Edmond, Okla., has admitted she embezzled $2,681,400.73 from the Oklahoma Beef Council.

One way she stole money was by making out cheques to herself and forging the signature of the executive director.

She was the council’s accountant from October, 1995, until late July last year.

She also admitted guilt in filing false income tax returns.
