OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The state Board of Education is trying to revoke the credentials of an eastern Oklahoma school superintendent who's charged with embezzling from his school district.

Marble City Public Schools Superintendent Larry Couch is charged in Sequoyah County District Court with embezzling more than $100,000 from the school. Couch has also been accused of collecting state aid the district wasn't entitled to received.

The state board has now filed a complaint to revoke his credentials.

Couch is still employed by the district but is on paid medical leave.
