Piedmont, W.Va. (AP) -- Former Piedmont town clerk Linda Butler has been indicted on an embezzlement charge.

A Mineral County grand jury handed up the indictment Tuesday.

Butler was initially charged last November following an investigation into the town's finances.

The investigation was based on a state audit of the 2005-2006 fiscal year that revealed $36,022.85 was missing.

Butler resigned in August 2006.
