GILLETTE, Wyo. — The wife of a Colorado man convicted of conning more than 100 Wyoming residents out of money he said would be used to send disabled children to a magic show has turned herself in.
Debra Sue Magnus, 50, of Las Vegas, turned herself in Wednesday and has been charged with conspiracy to obtain property by false pretenses, a felony, according to the Gillette News Record. Her husband, 45-year-old Larry Edward Magnus of Fort Collins, Colo., was convicted last month on the same charge.
Debra Magnus is accused of calling businesses beginning in January and asking for donations for the May show.
