VERNON, Conn. (AP) _ A Connecticut woman is returning to court to face allegations she phoned in bomb threats to banks to prevent her husband from inquiring about their money problems.

Forty-five-year-old Nicolina McLean of Coventry is to appear in Rockville Superior Court on Monday, after having her first in-depth meeting with her public defender.

She hasn’t yet entered pleas to three felony threatening charges.

Police say McLean hid the loss of her job and money problems from her husband for nearly a year.

When he began noticing the troubles and planned to go to their bank to ask questions, police say McLean called in bogus bomb threats to two banks in Coventry and another in Mansfield last month.

McLean’s public defender declined to comment on the allegations. She’s being held on $45,000 bail.
