    Former New London innkeepers now face fraud charges.

    The former owners of New London's historic Lighthouse Inn have been charged with defrauding at least 12 investors of more than $1.7 million with a phony resort casino project.

    Christopher Plummer, 49, of Lyme, and Maureen Clark, 56, of Stonington, are accused of using the funds to write checks for cash, pay expenses for the inn and make mortgage payments on a waterfront property in Stonington, according to U.S. Attorney David Fein.

    The pair are charged with conspiracy, wire fraud, mail fraud and money laundering. 

    According to a 32-count indictment, Plummer, Clark and others who remain unidentified engaged in an investment scheme from March 2006 to this month and solicited people to invest in a Lakeshore, Mississippi development that would include a casino, residential properties and medical facility.

    The Lighthouse Inn, originally a steel baron's waterfront home, was built in 1906 but closed two years ago because of financial problems, according to the Day of New London.
