A husband and wife from Jessamine County were indicted by a Franklin County Grand Jury on charges involving welfare fraud, according to the Kentucky Attorney General.

Prosecutors said Ala Samaan, 45, and Taghreed Samaan, 41, both of Nicholasville, are accused of getting more than $10,000 in Kentucky Medicaid benefits by fraud.

Ala Samaan is an officer in eight different corporations in Kentucky, including those that do business as Clucker's, a convenience store and gas station in Wilmore, and J.D. Legends, an entertainment complex with locations in Nicholasville and Franklin, Ohio, according to the Attorney General.

The indictment stems from investigations conducted by the OAG Department of Criminal Investigations.
