      W. Virginia woman charged with concealing remains; still unknown if bodies belong to missing Jasper women

      Wanda Faye Kiser, 61, of West Virginia has been charged with two counts of concealment of a dead body after last week's discovery of human remains inside a rented storage unit.

      SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - A Summersville woman has been charged with two counts of concealment of a dead body after last week's discovery of human remains inside a rented storage unit.

      West Virginia State Police Sgt. Michael Baylous tells media outlets that 61-year-old Wanda Kiser was arraigned Thursday and is being held in jail.

      Police found the bodies of 2 women inside Kiser's storage unit on Aug. 14. Experts from Washington, D.C., are working to identify the remains.

      Alabama authorities issued a warrant for Kiser's arrest on July 9 on 10 counts of forgery. Kiser allegedly had cashed retirement checks belonging to 105-year-old Mary Cobb and 84-year-old Wynona Delvecchio, both of Jasper, Ala.

      Alabama authorities said Kiser checked the women out of a nursing home there in 2000. They were reported missing in 2003.
