St. Joseph County, Ind. A St. Joseph County employee accused of scamming two women out of thousands of dollars has been sentenced to two years in prison and three years of probation.

Kim Savage, 44, was charged with two counts of class D felony theft.
She was in court Thursday for sentencing.

In October 2012, two women contacted the St. Joseph County Cyber Crimes Unit when they suspected they were being scammed by Savage.

They told police they had given her money and deposited it into her bank account to support two men they believed were United States Marines overseas.

Savage admitted that she created fake names and stories.
