ROGERS, Ark. (AP) — A woman who admitted she impersonated singer Alison Krauss to swindle money from a 75-year-old Fayetteville man has been returned to Arkansas after being arrested in New Mexico.

KHOG reports (http://bit.ly/1vpDlyS ) that Peggy Sue Evers pleaded not guilty to a failure to appear charge in Washington County Circuit Court on Wednesday.

Prosecutors say an arrest warrant was issued for Evers after she missed a court date. She was later arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Evers pleaded guilty earlier this year to impersonating the singer and marrying the man after convincing him she was Krauss.

Evers was sentenced to eight years of probation, ordered to pay restitution, return four cars to the man and sign his home back to him.

Krauss' publicist, Regina Joskow, declined to comment on the case.
