A West Virginia woman stole a hearse from a funeral home, and made off with a dead body, too, police said.

The hearse's driver left the vehicle's door ajar and the engine running outside a local funeral Tuesday, police in Beckley said. That's when Angela Dehart of Beaver allegedly jumped in and took off. Police said she droe home, and that they found the hearse and the body a couple hours later.

Police say DeHart, 23, told investigators she and another person had been in the area in another vehicle. She got out of that vehicle and took the hearse.

DeHart faces charges of grand larceny and displacement of a body.
