DENVER (AP) — A federal grand jury in Denver has indicted two men on a total of 132 counts related to human trafficking.

The indictment alleges 47-year-old Kizzy Kalu of Highlands Ranch, Colo., and 77-year-old Philip Langerman of McDonough, Ga., worked together to lure foreign nationals to work for Kalu’s health care company. Their phone numbers aren’t listed, and they couldn’t be reached for comment Friday.

Langerman is accused of representing that an Adam University in Denver needed nursing instructors, allowing the foreign nationals to get work visas. The university doesn’t exist.

Prosecutors say Kalu then had the foreign nationals work for him at long-term care facilities that contracted with his company for employees. Kalu is accused of paying wages far less than what was promised.
