A Franklin-area woman on Monday entered a guilty plea to one count of theft by deception in a case involving the disappearance of more than $35,000 from her Cranberry Township employer.

Sentencing in Venango County Court for 34 year-old Jill Docherty is scheduled for January.

Docherty was charged in July on six counts in connection with money reported missing and funds that were described as wage advances that were reportedly not repaid while Docherty worked as office manager for the firm.

Docherty was employed for six years for the company which manufactures airboat drive units and propeller blades.
