CREVE COEUR (AP) – A St. Louis County woman faces sentencing June 11 after admitted to a role in a tax fraud scheme that netted $1.4 million.

Patrina Taylor of Creve Coeur pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court in St. Louis. Federal prosecutors say an investigation began after Taylor tried to cash a tax refund check for a return filed in the name of a dead person and made payable to a second dead person.

That investigation led to charges against Taylor and three others. Prosecutors say the investigation has identified 200 suspicious tax returns.

Two others, Jason Bibbs and Betty Kirkendoll, have pleaded guilty to roles in the scheme and await sentencing. The alleged ringleader, Tania Henderson of Tampa, Fla., is awaiting trial.
