Ex-Huntington Accountant Faces Embezzlement Charges


  A former Huntington accountant has been charged with embezzling more than $1 million.

Media outlets report that 57-year-old Kimberly Dawn Price was charged with more than 950 counts including embezzlement, forgery and uttering.

Criminal complaints filed by State Police in Cabell County Magistrate Court say Price is accused of stealing from at least one client’s account from 2010 through last September while she was employed at an accounting firm.

According to the complaints, troopers said a relative of a client who died last October noticed the account was low and contacted the firm. Troopers said the funds allegedly were used by the suspect to pay off vehicles and for trips, among other things.

Price was arraigned on the charges Friday. It wasn’t immediately known whether she had an attorney.
