A trial date is set in Watonwan County for a county fraud investigator accused of theft.    

Jeffrey Edward Matthews was charged with theft and misconduct back in August.

At his arraignment , the judge set aside March 13 and 14 of next year for trial, with a pre-trial hearing set for March 3rd.

The criminal complaint alleges that Matthews would only be at work for a short period of time and then would leave on non-work related activity, costing the county more than 16-hundred dollars in wages.
