TULSA, Okla. (AP) – An Oklahoma woman charged with slashing her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend’s corpse is now accused of removing pieces from the body and theft.

Prosecutors plan to argue Friday that the bond of 26-year-old Shaynna Sims should be increased after she was charged Thursday with removal of a deceased person’s body part.

Sims was charged with illegal dissection earlier this month after police say she cut the woman’s corpse inside of a funeral home. Authorities now say she also removed both breasts and a toe from the body during the same viewing.

Sims was arrested in the dead woman’s home after the viewing. Police say she stole the dead woman’s shoes and was carrying a knife with the woman’s hair attached to it.

A call to Sims’ attorney Friday morning by the Associated Press wasn’t immediately returned.
