A Marshall County grand jury has indicted a couple on Medicaid fraud charges, according to the Kentucky attorney general's office of Medicaid Fraud and Abuse Control.

Last week, the grand jury indicted Ray Dufay, 54, and wife Melissa Dufay, 51, previously of Calvert City, both on one count of Medicaid fraud, a Class D felony. The grand jury also indicted Ray Dufay on one count of theft by deception over $500, also a Class D felony.

The couple allegedly submitted fraudulent timesheets for health, safety and welfare services Ray Dufay was paid to provide for his wife, which he did not perform, totaling more than $300 in Medicaid losses, according to a news release by the attorney general's office.

Ray Dufay also received more than $500 in payment from the Kentucky Medicaid program, for which he was not entitled.

The couple is scheduled to be arraigned Sept. 24 in Marshall Circuit Court. If convicted, Melissa Dufay faces up to five years in prison and Ray Dufay faces up to 10 years in prison.
