Toni M. Stevens, of Milford-Harrington Highway, was scheduled for trial on Tuesday in Kent County Superior Court, but a case review was scheduled for April 13 at the court’s request, the Delaware Department of Justice said.

According to the Milford Police Department, multiple thefts from a local business allegedly were made between January 2013 and March 2015. Ms. Stevens was arrested on April 17, 2015, and indicted on Sept. 8, 2015.

Ms. Stevens is facing 33 counts, including theft greater than $50,000, second-degree forgery, unlawful use of a credit card, and falsifying business records.

Trial dates of Dec. 9, 2015, and Jan. 5 also were rescheduled.

Deputy Attorney General Marie Graham is prosecuting for the state, with Jim Liguori representing Ms. Stevens, according to court documents.

Police detectives claimed investigation found Ms. Stevens allegedly wrote checks to herself and used the business credit card/account to pay personal bills. The alleged actions were concealed by changing business records, authorities claimed.
