BEAVER COUNTY, W.Va -- A 23-year old woman is accused of stealing a hearse containing the body of an 85-year-old woman.
Police say the hearse's driver left the vehicle's door open and the engine running outside a funeral home Tuesday while he went to unlock the door to the building.
After he stepped away, police say Angela Dehart jumped into the hearse and took off.
She reportedly told investigators she and her girlfriend were arguing in another car and she got angry and decided to leave in the hearse.
Police found the hearse and the body a couple hours later outside DeHart's house.
DeHart faces charges of grand larceny and displacement of a body.
