Fugitive Linda Morrow was returned to the United States in July and faces new charges in the Los Angeles federal courts, the FBI reported. She was able to enter Israel with a fraudulent passport.

Morrow is married to David M. Morrow, 74, who was charged in 2016 with dozens of counts of fraudulent billing with insurance companies while he was a plastic surgery in Rancho Mirage, the Desert Sun reported. His wife was the executive director of the practice. 


David Morrow agreed to a plea deal in 2017, admitting to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, according to the report. That same year, the two disappeared from the states. 


Linda is currently being charged with flying while on probation and contempt of court, the report stated. 


While David is still in Israel and await extradition, he will fight it. The fugitive couple was taken into Israel custody in June 16, according to the Desert Sun.


The total loss insurance companies experienced from the Morrow's schemes were estimated at USD $3.5 million, the report said.


Before the duo fled the US, David Morrow faced up to 20 years in prison and his wife had not yet had her trial.
