A Lincoln firefighter’s wife has been charged with felony welfare fraud.

Online court records list a Fremont address for 32-year-old April Houchin. But an affidavit from a Nebraska Health and Human Services Department official says the couple bought a house in Lincoln in February 2008, sold it in April 2012 and bought a Fremont home in December 2009.

The records say the couple married in September 2010 but had lived together longer.

The affidavit says Houchin fraudulently obtained nearly $15,000 in benefits over varying time periods by lying about her relationship with her husband and failing to list the homes and car she owned with him.
