KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A 50-year-old Warrensburg woman is accused of stealing $385,000 from a home for the disabled over the past five years.

A federal grand jury has handed down a 22-count indictment against Terri Arlene Marr, who was the director of the Progressive Alternative Living Inc. (AP) in Higginsville.

Marr was PAL's director from 1998 to 2013. The U.S. Attorney's Office says the embezzlement of Medicaid money started in 2008 and continued through this year.

Marr is accused of using PAL funds to repay her personal credit cards for personal expenses, including a Cabela's personal credit card. She is also accused of paying $175,400 in payroll checks from 2001 to 2013 even though the person never performed any work for PAL. That person is an unnamed and unindicted co-conspirator.

PAL paid $10,600 in payroll-related taxes.

The federal government is asking a judge to order Marr to repay the $385,218.58.

No one at the small facility with a handful of disabled residents would comment. Marr didn't respond to a knock at her door or telephone calls.
