So was this a case of a "Do it yourself" cremation? I would think if they found me kneeling over a burning body, I would be charged with more than a petty misdemeanor. If the guy passed away naturally, and she was trying to save a few bucks, I might understand that.

what the hay does she need an attny for? she`s charged with a petty misdmnr.this is plain nuckin futs. is that charge for forgetting to bring the marshmallows? yeah, i know this is a sick joke but so is the charge. do LE think it was spontaniuos human combustian and she was kneeling beside him and told cops she was trying to blow out the fire. some of this insanity i have been reading may encourage other outta state nut jobs to bring the ones they want to knock off to this state and you might just get a spankin. i dont know, maybe he died of natural causes and times are tough and deciced to creamate the remains. he deserves some justice and a prayer

Sad - if she indeed did this because she could afford to properly have him disposed of. Hey, it's our world and what we've created with everything costing money and too much money to boot!
