A woman suspected of swindling hundreds of thousands of dollars from St. Patrick’s Parish in St. John’s will go to trial this fall.

Dianne Clare Coady wasn’t in provincial court Monday when her case was called. Instead, she was represented by her lawyer Amanda MacDougall.

MacDougall and Crown prosecutor Mike Murray agreed to have the trial begin Nov. 3. Murray told Judge Colin Flynn that the trial is expected to last two weeks.

Coady has pleaded not guilty to three charges – theft over $5,000, fraud over $5,000 and uttering forged documents.
