TULSA, Okla. – Police have released more information about the Tulsa woman accused of vandalizing a corpse.

Earlier this month Shaynna Smith allegedly cut a woman’s corpse at a Tulsa funeral home.

After making her way into the funeral home, police say Smith found the woman’s body, cut the woman’s hair, smudged the makeup and cut the woman’s face.

She then burglarized the deceased woman’s home.

Authorities recently revealed that Smith also removed both breasts and a toe from the deceased woman, according to The Tulsa World.

Smith is charged with unauthorized dissection, disruption of a funeral, first-degree burglary, larceny, knowingly concealing stolen property, and unlawful removal of a deceased person’s body part.

Police say Smith’s boyfriend used to date the deceased woman.
