Updated:

MERCER COUNTY, Pennsylvania - A Mercer County woman faces legal trouble after admitting to police that she embezzled more than a million dollars from her employer.

Jeanne Zacherl, 64, faces two counts of theft charges. The felony of the third degree charges carry a maximum sentence of seven years in prison and up to $15,000 in fines.

Police say Zacherl claimed that she bilked her employer, Interstate Chemical Company, out of more than $1.1 million. Investigators traced her transactions from 2008 to 2012.

Zacherl told police she moved the money into lines of credit that she then gambled away on $10 slots at Mountaineer Casino.

Zacherl is out on $100,000 unsecured bail. Her case was bound over to the Mercer County Common Pleas Court.
