BROXTON, GA (WALB) – A grand jury indicted a south Georgia mayor and his daughter Friday afternoon, months after an audit showed about $577,000 in city money was missing.

Broxton Mayor Bobby Reynolds is charged with two counts of violating his oath of office, two counts of malfeasance, and one count of failure to take a proper oath. His daughter, Traci Lott who used to be city clerk, is charged with two counts of theft and one count of lying to the GBI.

Prosecutors say Lott overpaid herself and had possession of checks written to the city that were never deposited. Reynolds is accused of failing to supervise his daughter properly and failing to conduct required audits.

District Attorney Rick Currie told us he expects the case to go to trial early next year.
