A Coshocton woman is awaiting a sentencing hearing after pleading guilty to several charges related to a million dollar health care fraud scheme in a U.S. District Court.

Ohio Lieutenant Governor Mary Taylor announced Friday that Barbara Elise Miller, one of four co-defendants in a more than than $1 million dollar healthcare fraud billing scheme, entered guilty pleas to multiple counts on Thursday in a U.S. District Court in Cleveland.

Miller, who is the former owner of Three Rivers Infusion and Pharmacy Specialists in Coshocton, pled guilty to witness tampering, obstruction of an official proceeding and concealment of records. Miller also faces charges of federal healthcare fraud.

Along with Miller, the other co-defendants include her husband Dana Campbell, the company's former Vice President of Finance, and former employees Douglas Bolden and James Ireland, of Zanesville. Cambell, Bolden and Ireland were charged with multiple violations for their involvement.

The four  were indicted in early 2010 as result of of a joint investigation involving the Ohio Department of Insurance, Ohio Attorney General's Office, US Department of Health and Human Services, and FBI.
