A woman accused of stealing money from the Decorah, Iowa nursing home where she worked for 36 years is due in court for a preliminary hearing on Monday.

Nancy Elsbernd is charged with first-degree theft and ongoing criminal conduct for taking money from the Aase Haugen Nursing Home. A police affidavit says the 64-year-old admitted to investigators that she issued checks to herself over the past five to six years.

Investigators say more than $55,000 is missing from the nursing home's finances. Auditors are still checking the records, which Elsband had access to.

Elsbernd, who is out on bail, faces up to 35 years in prison if convicted.
