U.S. marshals hope showing off former Dixon, Ill. comptroller Rita Crundwell's trophies will help them get a better price for the horses she once owned.

Authorities are auctioning the trophies off to help recoup some of the money Crundwell is accused of stealing.

Prosecutors say she took more than $53 million from the city of Dixon during the past two decades to support a lavish lifestyle.

She has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges.
