TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras (AP) — Authorities say military police have arrested the wife of former Honduran President Porfirio Lobo as part of a corruption case.

Police arrived at the Lobo home in six vehicles and searched the residence before leaving with former first lady Elena Bonilla and her brother-in-law Mauricio Mora.

Prosecutors say Bonilla deposited $600,000 in government funds into her personal bank account five days before Lobo ended his four-year term in 2018. They also say she hasn't accounted for at least $6 million in government funds for her office.

Bonilla defense attorney Julio Ramirez says she's innocent.

Wednesday's arrest was announced by an anti-corruption mission of the Organization of American States.
