ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) - A New Mexico couple is accused of stealing more than $1 million from the Cattle Baron Restaurant in Roswell.
    
The state attorney general's office says Brian Casaus and his wife, Tammy, are facing numerous charges that include tax fraud and money laundering.
    
Initial hearings for the couple are scheduled next week. Court records did not list attorneys for either defendant.
    
Criminal complaints allege that Brian Casaus used his position as the restaurant's controller and office manager to transfer funds from the restaurant's bank account to personal accounts belonging to him and his wife.
    
Tammy Casaus worked as the restaurant's payroll coordinator.
    
The alleged fraud happened between 2012 and 2016.
    
Prosecutors say the money was used for personal expenses and to make payments to multiple credit cards and casinos.
