A Coshocton woman has pleaded guilty to charges related to her role in a more than $1 million health-care billing scheme.

Barbara Elise Miller, the former owner of Three Rivers Infusion and Pharmacy Specialists, 238 Main St. in Coshocton, pleaded guilty to witness tampering, obstruction of an official proceeding and concealment of records on Thursday in federal court in Cleveland.

A sentencing date has not been set.

Miller, who still faces federal health-care fraud charges, was indicted in 2010 along with her husband, Dana C. Campbell, a company vice president. He was charged with concealing records.

Two employees, Douglas A. Bolden and James O. Ireland, both of Zanesville, were indicted for obstruction.

The company was investigated for allegedly overbilling medical insurance companies, then-Ohio Attorney General Richard Cordray said at the time.

Federal agents raided the business and shut it down in 2008.
