Daughter tries to steal ring off of dead's mom's finger

From Wills, Trusts & Estates Prof Blog:

Mrs. Svajada of Corpus Christi, Texas left instructions to be buried wearing her ring

As the ring was worth $7,000, her daughter and friend decided that it was a "waste" to bury the ring and thus attempted to pry the ring off the Mrs. Svajada's body during the funeral. The daughter was charged with felony theft.

See AP, Woman charged in theft from mom's coffin, Feb. 16, 2007.

Charming. Sounds like Springer Show material.
