TROY, N.Y. (AP) _ An upstate New York woman accused of scamming almost half a million dollars from the fund for Boston Marathon bombing victims is fighting extradition to Massachusetts. Troy City Court officials say 26-year old Audrea Gause refused Tuesday to waive her right to an extradition hearing and go voluntarily to face a larceny charge.

The Troy woman was arrested Friday. She's being held on a fugitive warrant. Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley said Gause got a $480,000 check from the ``One Fund Boston'' after using faked medical records to claim she was treated at hospitals in Boston and in New York for a traumatic brain injury suffered in the bombings. Gause's lawyer, Charles Wilcox, says Tuesday she denies any wrongdoing.
