Her death was ruled a suicide by the medical examiner.

Bisher admitted her guilt to the embezzlement in January, and was expected to be sentenced Wednesday by state District Judge Nikita Harmon. The judge did not return a call about the sentence she would have handed down.

Prosecutor Lester Blizzard, who filed a dismissal in the case, said Bisher faced life in prison and he was planning on asking for a lengthy prison sentence for the first-degree felony theft of more than $300,000.

“It is a very tragic event and we will pray for the healing of all those involved in this sad case,” Blizzard said, in an e-mailed response about the case.

The case was referred to the Harris County District Attorney's Office financial crimes division, which obtained an indictment against Bisher.

Bisher and her husband opened a barbecue restaurant in Magnolia in 2017 that has since closed. Her husband could not be reached for comment Thursday.

Recent sentences handed by judges in Houston and across the state in cases involving thefts of a million dollars or more indicate that Bisher likely faced substantial jail time.

“The abuse of trust in this case was unparalleled in the 24 years I’ve been investigating white-collar crimes,” he said.

Jodi Arias wants appeal of murder conviction to be sealed .
A sizeable portion of the trial that sent Jodi Arias to prison for life in the 2008 death of her former boyfriend was shrouded in secrecy. A white-noise machine was turned on regularly during Arias' sentencing retrial three years ago to keep spectators from hearing what lawyers argued as they huddled around the judge's bench.
