Helena, MONT -

An official on the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation is charged with stealing tribal money to visit her husband while he was in prison for theft of tribal money.
    
An indictment unsealed late Tuesday says that Rocky Boy's Health Board Clinic director Fawn Tadios is charged with stealing more than $50,000 in federal and tribal money.
    
Prosecutors say Tadios used travel money and a tribal credit card to visit her husband in a federal prison in South Dakota. Former chairman Raymond "Jake" Parker Jr. was sentenced in 2011 for charging $59,000 to a tribal credit card for personal use.
    
Earlier this month, Tadios received a restraining order against recently deposed tribal chairman Ken Blatt St. Mark, who argued in that case that Tadios was part of a corruption problem on the reservation.
