Woman allegedly failed to pay bill

A bench warrant was to be issued for a Kentucky woman who faces a misdemeanor charge of theft after she allegedly walked out of Candlewood Suites, 1836 E. Third St., without paying a $1,600 bill, according to state police.

Nicole Eve Beckel, 35, of Louisville, spent 17 nights at the suites but left a bill unpaid when she left on July 31, police alleged in court papers.

She failed to appear for a recent preliminary hearing before District Judge Gary A. Whiteman.
