THOMASVILLE & VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –The federal trial of a former Archbold Medical Center executive is nearing its end.

Testimony wrapped up Tuesday afternoon, one week after the fraud trial began against retired Archbold president and CEO Ken Beverly.

He and former Archbold CFO William Sellers were indicted on 6 counts including conspiracy and submitting forged documents.

Prosecutors say they got Medicaid money the hospital was not entitled to receive.

Sellers entered guilty pleas to three counts, testified for the prosecution, and now awaits sentencing.

Wednesday, attorneys gave closing arguments and jurors were given instructions in a Valdosta US District Court.

A verdict is expected this week.
