SAN ANTONIO — A former military physician in South Texas has pleaded not guilty in a $7 million Army medical equipment contract fraud and bribery investigation.

The San Antonio Express-News reports that Dr. Heidi Webster on Monday pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud and bribery. Webster was freed on a $100,000 unsecured bond following her initial appearance in federal court in San Antonio.

The radiologist from Manhattan, Kan., once worked at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. A co-defendant who worked with Webster, retired Army Master Sgt. Lawrence Peter Fenti of New Braunfels, faces the same charges and earlier pleaded not guilty.

Both were named in a 40-count indictment returned in July.
