The wife of the Collin Street Bakery’s former controller, who was already accused of embezzling more than $16 million from the company, was herself indicted Wednesday.
A federal grand jury in Dallas returned a 22-count indictment, known as a superseding indictment, against Kay Jenkins, 63, and her husband, Sandy Jenkins, 65, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney’s office.
Sandy Jenkins was charged in September with mail fraud, but Kay Jenkins was not named until Wednesday.
The superseding indictment includes 10 counts of mail fraud and three counts of money laundering against Sandy Jenkins. It charges both husband and wife with money laundering, aiding and abetting, and making a false statement to a financial institution.
Kay Jenkins is expected to surrender and appear in court on Tuesday.
She could not be reached for comment. The telephone number listed for the Jenkinses’ Corsicana home is disconnected, and the law office of Brett Stalcup, who is representing Sandy Jenkins, said he is not representing Kay Jenkins.
Kay Jenkins recently filed for divorce from her husband of 43 years, accusing him of “fraud” against her. They separated five weeks after he was fired by the Collin Street Bakery in June, according to the divorce petition.
Sandy Jenkins was arrested in August and remains in jail. He pleaded not guilty to the original charges, and his trial is scheduled to begin April 7.
Wednesday’s indictment charges that “Sandy Jenkins and Kay Jenkins, did unlawfully and knowingly combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with each other to commit certain offenses” when they spent the money the government says Sandy Jenkins embezzled. The indictment goes on to say that both “made materially false statements concerning their monthly income” to buy a home in Santa Fe, N.M., when they declared that they earned $25,000 per month.
According to the indictment, Sandy Jenkins devised a scheme to embezzle money from the Collin Street Bakery in 2004 and continued until the company uncovered his actions on June 20, 2013.
