Delegate's wife found in contempt of court


WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — A judge on Monday found the wife of Navajo Nation Council Delegate Mel R. Begay to be in contempt of court after she repeatedly refused to answer questions about the discretionary fund case.

Mitzie Begay was taken to jail in Window Rock, Ariz., on Monday evening, hours after her husband's pre-trial conference.

Mel R. Begay, who represents Bahastl’ah, Coyote Canyon, Mexican Springs, Naschitti and Tohatchi chapters, faces criminal charges for allegedly misusing the fund, which was designed to help tribal members who faced financial hardships or needed emergency assistance.
