Melanie Newman, 25, and Michael Anthony "Tony" Goodloe, Jr., 29, of Carrollton, Texas, have been indicted on charges they embezzled some $220,000 from the Medical Center of Louisiana Foundation in New Orleans where Newman had been employed as a bookkeeper.

It is believed that the thefts occurred over a two year period from 2007 until 2009.
