Woman 'removed romantic rival's body parts'

Woman 'removed romantic rival's body parts'

A US woman has been charged with removing body parts from the corpse of her boyfriend’s ex-girlfriend.

Shaynna Sims was charged with illegal dissection earlier this month after police say she cut the woman’s corpse during a viewing at a funeral home.

Authorities in Tulsa, Oklahoma, now say she also removed both breasts and a toe.

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

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