CHARLESTON, WV (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a Kentucky woman will plead guilty and her husband will forfeit nearly $500,000 in an investigation of a West Virginia pain clinic.

Court filings suggest Myra Miller is ready to admit to misusing the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration registration number of a doctor at the Mountain Medical Care Center.

Investigators raided the Williamson clinic three years ago this month. They allege the clinic was prescribing powerful pain drugs to perhaps hundreds of people with no legitimate need for them.

Miller was office manager at the clinic, which remains closed. She faces a March 19 plea hearing in Charleston.

Prosecutors also say husband John Miller has agreed to forfeit $475,000. Most of that is cash seized from the couple's Kentucky residence at the time of the clinic raid.
