James Beckwith
BENNINGTON, Vt. - There are new accusations against the late acting president of Southern Vermont College, James Beckwith.

The Bennington Banner reports federal authorities now allege that Beckwith embezzled $110,000 in addition to the $440,000 he's already accused of taking from the school.

Beckwith was found dead at his South Londonderry home on February 20 from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

He worked at the college since 2007.

He resigned after he was questioned about the thefts.
