PINEVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Bell County Clerk Rebecca Blevins and two deputy clerks have been indicted in a case involving vehicle registrations.

Attorney General Jack Conway's office said a Bell County grand jury charged the 45-year-old Blevins with abuse of public trust and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

The grand jury Wednesday also indicted 23-year-old Kayla Carnes and 40-year-old Connie Watkins, charging them with second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

All pleaded not guilty after being arrested last month, and a judge had dismissed some charges.

Conway's office said 55-year-old Flora Ferrell, a deputy clerk who was also arrested last month as a result of the investigation, was not indicted. The charge against her also was previously dismissed.
