Authorities say crimes spanned almost two years.

Three nurses who worked for a Minot hospice program are accused of stealing drugs prescribed for patients.


The Minot Daily News reports that 39-year-old April Beckler, 45-year-old Kim Kochel and 39-year-old Jennifer Napora are all charged with felony theft of property.


Court documents show that the incidents took place between December 2012 and October 2014 while the nurses worked for Trinity Hospital's Home Health and Hospice program.


Beckler and Kochel face two other charges, including endangering a venerable adult. They are accused of diluting medication or giving morphine instead of a more potent version of the drug that was prescribed to manage pain.


The three women have yet to appear in court. It's not clear if they have hired lawyers.
