TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- A Lakewood police officer accused of taking more than $120,000 from a fund for the families of four slain officers is expected to plead guilty Friday in federal court in Tacoma.

Court documents indicate 34-year-old Skeeter Timothy Manos agreed to a plea deal on wire fraud charges.

Manos was treasurer of the Lakewood Police Independent Guild in 2010 and 2011 when he is accused of diverting donations and using the money for gambling trips to Las Vegas and shopping sprees.

Mano was fired after he was charged.
