SAN ANTONIO — Two former officials of a San Antonio military medical center have signed plea deals to admit their guilt in a fraudulent scheme involving more than $7 million in military contracts.

The San Antonio Express-News reports retired Army Master Sgt. Lawrence Peter Fenti of New Braunfels and Dr. Heidi L. Webster of Manhattan, Kan., will plead guilty in court Thursday to conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The 42-year-old Fenti also has agreed to plead guilty to accepting a bribe, while the 50-year-old Webster will plead to giving him one.

Fenti was the chief administrator for Brooke Army Medical Centerís radiology department and Webster worked at the center.

Prosecutors say they steered contracts to two Kansas companies run by Webster that she registered as defense contractors.
