A suburban New York Republican chairwoman has stepped down amid fraud allegations and raids on her home and party headquarters, prosecutors said today.

The former North Castle Republican chairwoman, Loronda Murphy, is also a real estate agent.

She was arrested in February on charges she stole money during a home refinancing in Suffolk County, on Long Island.

Westchester district attorney spokesman Lucian Chalfen says there were other alleged victims in Westchester. He said the raids occurred in Westchester on Sept. 10 as part of a joint investigation.

Suffolk DA spokesman Robert Clifford says prosecutors believe Murphy used the mortgage proceeds to satisfy other mortgages. Murphy's lawyer, Robert Gottlieb, says she denies the allegations.
