CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — A Clovis couple accused of defrauding the Air Force have pleaded not guilty to federal charges.

Attorney Terree Bowers says Donald Dean Brewer and his wife Sherri Lynn Brewer are innocent and intend to fight the charges.

The Brewers are charged with conspiracy to defraud the government, 12 counts of wire fraud and four counts of major fraud. The indictment alleges the Brewers and a third person, James McKinney, tainted $33.5 million in contracts by overcharging the Air Force more than $6.4 million between 2002 and 2008.

The Clovis News Journal reports the indictment charges the trio with inflating billings for contracts to install cabling and electronics for information and telephone systems at government medical facilities worldwide.
