MCCRACKEN COUNTY, Ky. (KFVS) - Two people in western Kentucky were recently indicted after an investigation by the attorney general’s Medicaid Fraud Unit.

According to a release from the office of Attorney General Daniel Cameron, on December 2, a McCracken County Grand Jury indicted Kenneth Verne Anderson, 68, and Gina Smith Anderson, 63, on 25 counts of knowing exploitation of an adult or more than $300, five counts of theft by failure to make required disposition of property over $10,000 and one count of theft by failure to make required disposition of property over $1,000 but less than $10,000.
