    A couple is accused of cheating the Rivers Casino on Pittsburgh’s North Side out of more than $10,000.

    Charges against Shaun Benward, 35, and Denielle Derohan, 42, both of Mississippi, were filed early Wednesday.

    Troopers said the two worked together to cheat at roulette.

    Investigators said Benward would buy in and distract the dealer when the wheel was spinning and Derohan would stand nearby and watch where the ball landed on the wheel.

    Police said Derohan would then alert Benward before the dealer could see where the ball landed and he’d give the dealer his bet.

    Troopers said the incident happened at least three times in a 24-hour period.
