A woman who kept the mummified remains of her boyfriend in her home for more than a year now faces criminal charges.
Linda Lou Chase faces multiple counts of forgery, according to the Jackson County prosecutor's office.
Police and prosecutors say Chase collected and kept at least $28,000 in social security and pension checks meant for Charles Zigler.
Investigators say he apparently died of natural causes - but that she kept his body in the home they shared for some 19 months.
Police discovered the body after Zigler's relatives got suspicious. Zigler's body was found sitting in a chair in the house.
While they want her to pay the money back, prosecutors say it's unlikely Chase, who is 72-years-old, will face any prison time.
"This is a very unusual case," Prosecutor Hank Zavislak said in a press release. "Given the circumstances it is clear a comprehensive mental examination is in order. I would expect that to be ordered as the case progresses."
