Suspect to change plea in Warren investment scam case

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, Ohio -

The former associate of a Warren investment firm is expected to plead guilty to taking part in a ponzi scheme that investigators say bilked investors out of millions of dollars.

According to U.S. District Court records, Keelan Harris will change his previous not guilty plea when he  appears before a federal judge next week.

Harris and Karen Starr were indicted last year on charges of wire fraud and money laundering in connection with the operation of Complete Developments LLC and Investments International.

According to authorities,  Harris, Starr and  Kevin Harris conspired to defraud more than 100 investors out of more than $15.8 million from 2006 to 2009.

Federal investigators say the three promised investors a 7 to 12 percent return on their investments that never came to fruition.

Kevin Harris has already been convicted for his part in the scheme. He's been sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to make restitution.

The case against Karen Starr is still pending.
