Peggy Sue Evers Is in Tears, and in Jail. She Speaks Exclusively with 40/29 News.

ROGERS, Ark. (AP) -- A woman who admitted she impersonated singer Alison Krauss to swindle money from a 75-year-old Fayetteville man has been returned to Arkansas after being arrested in New Mexico.

KHOG reports ( http://bit.ly/1vpDlyS ) that Peggy Sue Evers appeared in Washington County Circuit Court Wednesday and pleaded not guilty to a failure to appear charge.

Prosecutors say an arrest warrant was issued for Evers after she missed a court date. She was later found and arrested in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Evers pleaded guilty earlier this year to impersonating the singer and marrying the man after she convinced him she was Krauss.

Evers was sentenced to eight years of probation, ordered to pay restitution, return four cars to the man and sign his home back to him.
