Man sues ex-fiancee over $2 million worth of missing jewelry

- The love is gone and so are millions of dollars in jewels.

Millionaire business man Scott Mitchell is suing his ex-fiancee' Mary Hunt after he claims she broke into his home and stole from him last August.

Hunt is now facing grand theft charges.  She's accused of breaking into her ex-fiancee's home and then stealing millions of dollars worth of jewels, diamonds, and gold.

Court documents show with the help of her mother, she shipped the jewels to her parents' home in Virginia.

Hunt's father called Mitchell and told him he had received the pricey loot by mail.

Monday in a Pinellas County courtroom Hunt wasn't there, but her attorney was present. Attorney Rohom Khonsari complained the case is moving slowly, because he is not getting all the documents and evidence he needs in the case.

"I am still waiting for reports from Pinellas Sheriff's office and the agency in Virginia where a search warrant was executed," said Khonsari.

The criminal trial is scheduled to begin this summer.

Hunt denies stealing anything. If convicted she faces up to 30 years in prison.
