By  | 

HEALDTON, OK -- A former Healdton city treasurer has been charged with embezzlement.

Karen Kardaleff turned herself in Monday to the Carter County Sheriff''s office and had her initial appearance on the charge that same day.

The Healdton City Council requested a state audit in July 2012 that found almost $80,000 dollars missing.

The audit says Kardaleff was suspended from her bank deposit duties in March 2012 and fired in August that year.

The Carter County District Attorney's office says she bonded out on a $10,000 dollar bond.

Her preliminary hearing conference is set for April 8th.
